The legislator noted in the appeal that one of the most common abuses of employers in relation to employees is the evasion of concluding an employment contract provided for by law.

Having agreed verbally on working conditions and the amount of earnings, an employee not protected by a written agreement may end up without wages, Vlasov emphasized.

Quite often, he added, the victims of unscrupulous employers are students who find themselves in a difficult life situation, who are deprived of the opportunity to pay for their studies or rent on time.

In accordance with the Code of Administrative Offenses of Russia, fines are provided for evading the execution of an employment contract: from 50 to 100 thousand rubles for legal entities, from 10 to 20 thousand rubles for officials, from 5 to 10 thousand rubles for individual entrepreneurs.

If for legal entities the fine is significant, then for individual entrepreneurs it is symbolic, disproportionate to the amount of unpaid average salary, the parliamentarian noted.

“In this regard, I ask you to consider the advisability of amending the Code of Administrative Offenses in terms of establishing a single fine corridor - from 50 to 100 thousand rubles - for all categories of employers for evading the conclusion of an employment contract, from 100 to 200 thousand rubles - for a repeated offense, ”the text of the appeal says.

Earlier, a labor market specialist spoke about changes in the field of employment.
