Ministry of Labor proposed not to fine for smoking
The Russian Ministry of Labor said that smoking is not a reason for cutting wages. Earlier this idea was expressed in the Ministry of Health, the department recommended companies to fine smokers and encourage non-smoking employees.
The Russian Ministry of Labor supports work to strengthen public health, including smoking cessation, however, this habit cannot be considered as a factor taken into account when setting wages, the employer has the right to ensure labor discipline so that breaks do not affect work processes adversely, cites department press service TASS.
The proposal to fine for smoking employees is contained in the corporate model program “Strengthening Public Health”, created by the Russian Ministry of Health. This recommendation is not binding.
