The Federal Service for Labour and Employment (Rostrud) protected the rights of more than 220,000 workers for the first half of the year 2020. From January to July, it was possible to help the specified number of citizens to pay off their wage arrears in the amount of about 5.8 billion rubles.
It is stated that based on the results of the control and supervisory measures, more than 500 materials were sent to the prosecutor’s office and the investigation in order to consider the issue of bringing persons guilty of violating the legislation on labour remuneration to criminal responsibility.
It is specified that the service in every possible way monitors violations of delays or non-payment of salaries to workers, solving such cases and reacting to every complaint. So, as of September 1, the volume of debt in the Russian Federation is the lowest since 2018 (1.83 billion rubles).
