Starting from 1 May 2018, the monthly minimum wage will be raised to subsistence level and will
amount to RUB 11,163.
Given the change in the minimum monthly wage,
an employer will face the following:
- Changes in the calculation of payments for sick leave of employees whose length of service
is less than 6 months or whose salary is lower than the monthly minimum wage;
- Fines, if an employee’s salary is lower than the minimum monthly
- for companies – RUB 30,000 to RUB 50,000,
and if discovered on a
further occasion — RUB 50,000 to RUB 70,000;
a company’s CEO or
chief accountant – RUB 1,000 to RUB 5,000, and for a repeat offence — RUB 10,000 to RUB 20,000; and
for a period from 1 to 3 years.
