In this article, based on personal experience, we will consider the algorithm for the work of a labor law lawyer when he is employed in a commercial (non-profit) organization created in Russia.
First, a labor lawyer must study the list of local acts in force in the organization. Particular attention should be paid to the presence of local acts in the organization, which the employer must approve in accordance with the Labor Code of the Russian Federation. These include: internal labor regulations, regulations on labor protection, on personal data, on wages and bonuses.
Secondly, a labor lawyer must decide on local acts that are advisable to be adopted in an organization, in relation to the specifics of its type of activity. For example, in a production organization that has a vast territory, a provision on intra-facility and access control should be adopted. In large trading companies, provisions on trade secrets, on structural divisions, and on the rules for negotiating may be useful.
Thirdly, a labor law lawyer must carefully check the content of local acts, as well as orders and orders of the head of the organization, with the norms of current legislation. If there are contradictions between local acts and legal acts of the Russian Federation, the head of the organization should be informed about the existing risks during possible inspections of state regulatory bodies.
