Current labour legislation does not correspond to the current level of labor relations, said Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev in the program “Dialogue” on the “Russia 24”.
According to him, the labour legislation should become more flexible. “You can build a work schedule that the person is busy, for example, four days a week or, conversely, a smaller number of hours each day to work,” he said.
Medvedev noted that today a significant portion of people working from home and earning good money. “But they are not connected to the internal regulations, the need at nine o’clock in the morning to come, for example, and six hours to leave,” he explained.
The head of government expressed confidence that the number of such workers with the development of digitalization will increase. Remote employment also needed to be addressed in the framework of labor legislation, he concluded.
In August, the head of the Cabinet instructed the Ministry of labour until the end of September to evaluate the impact of a potential four-day sittings on the country’s economy, productivity and social sphere.
Later, the Minister of economic development Maxim Oreshkin said that in practice this will be made possible by increasing incomes and productivity growth.
