Letter of the Federal Service of Labour and Employment No. 1597-6-0 of September 13, 2006 on the Uninterrupted Length of Work



Explains the procedure of determination of the uninterrupted length of work in the regions of the Far North.

Since the actual legislation, while applying the term "uninterrupted length of work", does not provide its legal definition, uninterrupted length of work in the regions of the Far North should imply the periods of work in the mentioned regions summed up according to established procedure on condition that the intervals between these periods are not greater than the limit specified in the legislation.

Since the legislative act specifying the amount of the mark-up in percent, as well as the procedure of its application, is not adopted until now, in the determination of the length of work in the given localities, one should be guided by the Instruction endorsed by the Order of the RSFSR Ministry of Labour No. 2 of November 22, 1990, as well as the Decision of the Government of the Russian Federation No. 1012 of October 7, 1993 on the procedure of identification and calculation of the length of work permitting to get the mark up in percent to the earnings for the persons working in the regions of the Far North and localities of similar status and in the rest of the regions of the Far North.

In these cases, one should take into account that the ruling of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation No. KAS04-596 of December 23, 2004 invalidated individual items of the Instruction.

In the identification of the regions of the Far North and localities of similar status, one should be guided by the list of the regions of the Far North and localities of similar status endorsed by the Decision of the Council of Ministers of the USSR No. 1029 of November 10, 1967.

Letter of the Federal Service of Labour and Employment No. 1557-6 of September 8, 2006 on the Advance Payments of Earnings



According to the actual labour legislation of the Russian Federation, the earnings must be paid out at least once in two weeks on the day specified in the internal rules of the organisation, the collective contract or the labour contract. Thus, specific time limits for paying out the earnings, including the advance payment, as well as the amount of the advance payment, are determined in the internal rules, the collective contract or the labour contract. The actually spent working time (actually fulfilled work) should also be taken into account in the determination of the amount of advance payment apart from the formal fulfilling of the requirement to pay out the earnings at least 2 times a month.
