Tougher penalties for late payment of salary

Tougher penalties for late payment of salary

A law project that will toughen penalties for late payment of salary has been introduced to the State Duma.

It is proposed to change ways of punishment excluding warnings and apply only the following penalties:

1)      For legal entities  – a fine of 30 to 50 KRUB and of 50 to 100 KRUB for a repeated violation within a year;

2)      For individual entrepreneurs – a fine of 1 to 5 KRUB and of 10 to 30 KRUB for a repeated violation;

3)      For General Directors – a fine of 10 to 20 KRUB fro and of 20 to 30 KRUB for a repeated violation or disqualification for the period from 1 to 3 years.

According to the authors of the project, warning is not efficient enough and penalties will better prevent late payments of salary.
