Abstract

The social value of labor law and social security law is that their main objective is to allow people to meet their socially significant needs (food, clothing, housing, security). Most often, people receive a livelihood that allows them to realize these needs for their work. Labor law regulates the intense activity of people, creates guarantees of safe work and stable wages. However, when a person cannot work, this legislation does not achieve its goal. Then social security law guarantees people support in the form of various benefits and pensions. The family as a basic element of society is affected by all changes in the economy or politics. The study shows that problems of the labor of employees with family responsibilities exist in many countries. The instability of work, when only one of the spouses is engaged in work, forces the second spouse to go to work. Thus, there is a need for care for children and elderly family members. Russian labor law contains guarantees of protection of people with family responsibilities, but we can note some shortcomings as for the homework and the distance work. The protection of such workers should be aimed not only at receiving benefits, but also at providing them with opportunities to work in order to meet socially significant needs.
