Alexandra Gerasimova, Head of Practice at FBK Legal, has participated in the conference “Occupational Safety: New Safety Culture Philosophy” arranged by the event planning agency Sobytiye.
She spoke about the new rules of inspections conducted by the State Labour Inspectorate but underlined that the majority of inspections are unscheduled and new rules and restrictions do not apply to them.
“Most of the violations identified in Moscow concern job compensation and labour management. Breach of employment contracts is the second most common violation. Besides, there are many violations related to work schedule, financial liability, discipline and occupational safety,” she said.
Public officials, businessmen and non-governmental officials discussed issues related to the development of the industry, in particular, how regulations and standards have changed, which factors affect labour management today and what each employer should know to ensure safe working conditions in the company.
