Oct. 31—A new online service allows employees to check whether their labor contracts meet legislative requirements, Russian labor regulator Rostrud announced Oct. 20. The web-based platform, available on Rostrud's Work in Russia website, is intended to streamline legislative compliance audits of labor contracts by employees.

Rostrud encourages workers to carry out online legislative compliance audits of draft labor contracts using the new web-based platform before signing any agreement. Employees who have already signed labor contracts can use the online service to check whether the agreements properly respect their labor rights.

If an employee audit finds that labor contract provisions are at variance with Russian labor legislation or government regulations, the new online service allows employees to report the violations to Rostrud, using the Report a Problem section of the Online Inspectorate.
