The government cannot change the length of the working day, because it is not his prerogative. This was stated by Deputy Prime Minister and head of the government of Russia Konstantin Chuichenko in the program “Dialogue” on TV channel “Russia 24”. Video transfer posted on YouTube.
Chuichenko told about it in the context of the abolition of a number of laws adopted in the times of the USSR and RSFSR. In particular, it was the decree of the Council of people’s Commissars of the RSFSR from 1917 on eight-hour day. According to him, the repeal of obsolete regulations will not change the duration of the working day because it is set by the Labour code.
“We give the relevant service the right to exercise supervision and control over the labor time, but this does not mean that we can within their authority to establish qualitative and quantitative characteristics,” — said Chuichenko, adding that labour relations are in the competence of the law.
11 September, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has signed the order, which in the framework of the “regulatory guillotine” from January 1, 2020, terminates the series of laws adopted in the times of the USSR and RSFSR. According to him, Russia should cancel the actions of those acts that hinder the development of the economy. Among these documents was the decree on the eight-hour working day.
