According to the Ministry of Labour, when companies grant vacations to their employees only for weekends, this is a violation of employment legislation. The Ministry has explained that fines should be imposed for such a practice. Nevertheless, the Ministry concedes that the start of a vacation can fall on a public holiday or a weekend.

A fine can be imposed for violating employment legislation as follows:

  • from RUB 1,000 to RUB 5,000 for officers of companies and for individual entrepreneurs;
  • from RUB 30,000 to RUB 50,000 for companies themselves.
