Self-employed want to compensate sick leave
The Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation is discussing the possibility of compensating sick leave to self-employed. We are also talking about the organization of maternity payments.
As reported "Vedomosti", currently self-employed do not make contributions to the Social Insurance Fund and, accordingly, cannot claim compensation for sick leave and maternity leave. The Ministry of Labor of the Russian Federation noted that since self-employment for many is not the main source of income, then "the priority option for providing social guarantees is insurance and on voluntary principles."
According to experts, the implementation of this initiative will require changes in a number of laws and regulations. According to the FSS, in Russia last year there were 24,7 thousand people registered who voluntarily entered the compulsory social insurance system.
