Working paper

Временная или непостоянная занятость в России: данные, уровень, динамика, распространенность

Labor relations were strongly regulated in Soviet economy and nonstandard working arrangements as a rule were not allowed. In 1992, the labor market was largely deregulated but a wide use of fixedterm contacts still remains very restricted. The 2002 Labor Code made only marginal changes in this policy. These restrictions are however poorly enforced and may not work outside unionized and well monitored large and medium sized enterprises. In this paper, using the LFS microdata we explore the evolution of temporary employment in Russia dur ing the last 10 years. We show its gradual rise and distribution across major sociodemographic and occupational groups in the Russian labor force. We conclude that the rate of nonpermanent employment is comparable with that on average in the OECD countries.
