Labor inspection visit. Violations and penalties 2019

Being engaged in this or that business, you do not always have the opportunity to perform all necessary actions independently. The question arises about the need to hire labor. By attracting workers to your business, you enter into labor relations with them, which are regulated by the Labor Code and other regulations in the field of labor law.
But the correctness of your building relationships with the staff, under the prism of labor legislation, is the subject of verification of labor inspection.
You will say that there is a tax audit case: once a fine is imposed and the business can be closed.
But we will object that the labor inspectorate is not so harmless and “low tariff” in terms of the size of fines , inspecting authority.
Now we’ll work it out together.

What can be checked.
Coming to the employer, among other things, the inspector checks the correctness of the application of the legislation on:

  • • labor;
  • • engaging potential workers, including the disabled,
  • • social benefits (assistance, compensation, the provision of other types of material protection);
  • • advertising (in terms of posting information about vacancies);
  • • Dosimetric monitoring of workplaces of personnel units and their exposure doses.

In particular, labor inspectors will be interested in the following questions:

  • • delays in remuneration for labor, other payments, indexations;
  • • setting the value of remuneration for work below the minimum;
  • • compliance with the rules for formalizing relations with the personnel unit;
  • • legality / illegality of transfers and movements of personnel units;
  • • timeliness of issuance to the personnel unit of the workbook;
  • • timeliness of solving all material issues when parting with a personnel unit;
  • • correctness of making records in workbooks;
  • • signing a contract with a team of workers;
  • • observance of labor time and rest time, etc.

What is a violation. Responsibility.
By types of liability violations can be divided into two main groups:

  • • Misdemeanors for which a benefactor who attracts workers to work is subject to financial sanctions under Article 265 of the Labor Code of Ukraine.
  • • Misdemeanors for which an administrative penalty is imposed on him on the basis of the norms of the Administrative Code of Ukraine.

Financial sanctions.
It should be noted right away that the base for calculating sanctions is the minimum wage (hereinafter - M), which from January 1, 2019 is 4 173 UAH. per month.
