form (eg,further training).

Question 1

An employee is undergoing training in the


organization and works part-time. Can a
company send him to a business trip in days
free from training, if he does not mind?

Answer:

Article 203 of the LC RF established that workers being


trained in the organization, by agreement with the
employer may be fully released from work under an
employment contract or doing the job part-time. However,
this article prohibits the sending employees on business
trips which are not related to apprenticeship, during the
period of apprenticeship contract.

Therefore, if the trip is not connected with apprenticeship,


sending to such trip would be a violation of labor
legislation, even with the agreement of the employee.

Question 2

How to determine in the apprenticeship


contract the size of student's scholarship paid
to workers assigned to professional
retraining?

Answer:

According to Art. 198 of the Labor Code, the employer - legal


entity (organization) has the right to conclude with an
employee of the organization an apprenticeship contract for
training or re-training without separation or with separation
from work. This agreement will be additional to the
employment contract.

The law also obliges the employer to pay the scholarship to


students in apprenticeship (Art. 204 of the LC RF). Size of the
scholarship is determined by the apprenticeship contract,
depending on the profession, specialty, qualification, but can
not be lower than the statutory minimum wage.
