Новый Трудовой кодекс: принес ли он перемены?
The article presents the results of the research which aim is to analyze the reaction of enterprises to changes in Labor laws norms since the time of a new Labor code introduction (February 2002). The authors analyze the findings of two surveys of top-managers each based on a sample of 300 industrial enterprises. The analysis shows that in spite of a relatively short time past after introducing the new Labor code topmanagers of enterprises are rather well aware of its contents. But most of them evaluate changes in comparison with the previous Code of Labor laws as insignificant ones. Accordingly significant changes in actual employers' behavior in labor sphere have not been found yet. Perhaps the only sphere where new norms of Labor law have led to real changes in the employers economic behavior is the increase of workers employment on fixed-term contracts.
