Three months to think

The Labor Code of the Russian Federation has been supplemented with a new type of individual labor dispute, considered at the request of an employee by the courts, and a time limit for filing a claim in court for compensation for moral damage caused to an employee as a result of violation of his labor rights.

Article 391 of the Labor Code from April 16 of this year contains such type of claims as compensation for moral damage caused to an employee by unlawful actions (inaction) of the employer.

Now the employee has the right to file a claim in court for compensation for moral damage caused to him as a result of violation of his labor rights simultaneously with the demand for the restoration of violated rights or within three months after the entry into force of the court decision, by which these rights were restored in full or in part.
