The higher the income level of Russians, the higher they rate their knowledge of the Labour Code, which follows from the results of a study conducted by specialists from the SuperJob job search service.
The results of the study showed that 46 per cent of economically active Russians are familiar with the main provisions of the Labour Code of the Russian Federation and can, if necessary, apply them to protect their interests. Another 39 per cent of the respondents have an idea of what the Labour Code guarantees them, but they cannot independently apply it to defend their position, and only 15 per cent of the respondents admitted that they are not familiar with the Labour Code of the Russian Federation.
It is clarified that those Russians who, in the event of a conflict, are ready to operate with the provisions of the Labour Code, are mostly the respondents over 45 years old and people with an income of over 80 thousand rubles (56 per cent each). Women are more likely than men to doubt their abilities, speaking only of basic knowledge of the laws (41 per cent versus 36 per cent, respectively). Those who are completely unfamiliar with the provisions of the Labour Code are mostly the surveyed with an income of less than 30 thousand rubles (21 per cent) and young people under 34 (19 per cent).
