Сравнительный анализ норм, регулирующих труд спортсменов и тренеров в Российской Федерации и Республике Беларусь
As a result of the amendment of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation in 2008, the legal core of the norms regulating the work of athletes and coaches was formed. However, over the course of 14 years, these norms have practically not been changed, despite the fact that the domestic sphere of sports has gone through periods of disqualification and lengthy trials. In addition, as part of the implementation of the Agreement on the Establishment of the Union State between the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus, priority directions and priority tasks for the further development of the Union State for 2018—2022 were identified, providing for unification in the field of sports legislation. In this regard, the author of the article conducts a comparative analysis of a number of labor law norms of Russia and Belarus, which regulate the relations that develop between athletes and coaches, on the one hand, and employers, on the other hand. The basis of the research methodology was a combination of general scientific and private scientific approaches and research methods. Such formal logical methods as analysis, synthesis, induction, deduction were used. The research material was the legislation of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus regulating the field of sports, and the research of well-known sports lawyers of these countries. According to the results of the study, the need to improve the norms of Russian labor law regulating the work of athletes and coaches is indicated. Such work can be based on the norms regulating the work of athletes and coaches in Belarus, implementing the requirement to unify legislation in the field of sports.
