Dialogue with High Commissioner. Mothers’ labor rights

12 September 2017

The birth of a child can be called the most wonderful event in the woman’s life, when everything acquires new colors and your priorities are replaced with completely different ones. Undoubtedly, the «work» of the mother is the most noble and most honorable, therefore women take maternity leave. And they should feel confident in the future. However, this is not always the case.

Citizen P. of the Krasnodar Territory appealed to me. According to the applicant, since May 20, 2013 she has been working as an economist at the company Mining Engineering Construction Company LLC. In November 2013, the employer granted her maternity leave, but did not pay the pregnancy and maternity benefit and the monthly childcare allowance until the child reached the age of one and a half years.

After examination the materials, I sent an appeal to the prosecutor’s office of the Krasnodar Territory and the prosecutor’s office of Sochi.

According to the response, in April 2016, the prosecutor of the Central District of Sochi made a submission to the self-regulating organization of arbitration administrators, as well as instituted proceedings to bring the contest administrator to administrative responsibility for unlawful actions in bankruptcy.

In June 2017 it became known that the Main Department of the Krasnodar Regional Branch of the FSS of the Russian Federation paid P. the entire amount of debt in the amount of 459,973.94 rubles.

Thus, the property rights of the mother and her child were restored.

I would like to ask all employers to treat women workers with respect and understanding and not to abandon them to the mercy of fate in situations where support is needed more than ever.
