Tighten of penalties for employers, who obstruct in choosing a bank for calculating salaries


The Ministry of Labor has placed for public discussion the Draft Law "On Amending Part 6 of Article 5.27 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation", which proposed tighten the administrative responsibility of employers for restricting employees to the right to choose a bank for accounting salaries.

The Ministry of Labor reminded that since November 2014 there is an edition of the Labor Code, according to which the salary is paid to the employee at the place of work or transferred to the specified credit organization. An employee can change a "salary" bank, informing the employer with a written notice about the change in bank requisites, not later than five working days before the day of payment of the salary. At the same time, the organization has no right to refuse the employee to transfer the salary to another credit organization upon receipt of the relevant application, and also has no right to oblige the employee to receive salary in the bank with which the employer has concluded a service contract.

The Ministry proposes to amend the Administrative Code establishing the following administrative liability in a form of penalty in case employer obstructs employee in  choosing bank to which salaries should be transferred:

• for officials - from 10 000 to 20 000 rubles;
• for individuals engaged in entrepreneurial activities without the formation of a legal entity (IP) - from 1 000 to 5 000 rubles;
• for legal entities - from 30 000 to 50 000 rubles.
