New rules for the payment of wages

16.01.2017

In accordance with the new wording of Article 136 of the Labor Code, wages  in the first half of the month must be paid on an established day from 16 to 30 (31) of the current month, in the second half - from 1 to 15 of the next month.

Requirements to limit the 15-calendar days to payroll period relate to payments of accrued employee salaries, which must be carried out not less than every half of the month.

At the same time, incentive payments (bonuses, allowances, bonuses) are a component of salaries and are awarded for the results, indicators of achievement and are paid within the period specified by the employment agreement, the normative act, in particular, for the month, quarter, year, and other periods.

As noted by the Russian Ministry of Labour, if the monthly premium is made within a month following the reporting month, or a specific time / date of payment is set, it is not a violation of the new requirements of the labor legislation.
