The procedure of establishing part-time work during the period of leave for childcare
The employee has the right to work part-time in this period of leave for childcare while maintaining the monthly allowance for childcare up to one and a half years.
At the same time, the reduction of working hours can be recognized by a court for the protection of employee rights.
This decision of the court, in turn, causes the refusal of the employer to adopt to offset the payment of insurance coverage costs. (Resolution AS Northwestern District on November 28, 2016 number F07-10823 / 2016 and case number A13-2070 / 2016)
In order to avoid these consequences it must be kept in mind that in the time left from the full-day it should be possible to carry out childcare, so that the working hours in this case cannot be reduced to a negligible period of time (e.g., 5 minutes).
In this regard, the Social Insurance Fund indicates that in the case of the establishment of part-time work by reducing the daily hours of work time can be reduced by not less than 1 hour (paragraph 8 of the Regulations on the procedure and conditions for the use of the labor of women having children and working part-time, approved by the Resolution of the USSR State Committee of the Secretariat of the All-Union Central Trade Union Council on April 29, 1980 № 111 / 8-51).
