Forced Labor in Modern Russia: Questions about Legal Responsibility and the Protection of Worker’s Rights
Prohibition of forced labor is one of the fundamental principles of labor law in Russian Federation. However, the analysis of enforcement practice shows that this principle remains declarative. The Labor Code provisions concerning individual labor disputes stipulates no specific measures to protect worker’s rights in forced labor cases. Alisa Oblezova, Fulbright-Kennan Institute Research Scholar and Senior Lecturer, Labor Law and Social Security Department, Perm State University, investigates the different questions concerning employer’s liability for the use of forced labor, as well as methods for the protection of workers, including migrant workers, and makes an overview of proposed amendments to current legislation.
