The Constitution of the Russian Federation guarantees every citizen the right to work. Article 37 of the Basic Law proclaims: “everyone has the right to freely dispose of his abilities to work, to choose his occupation and profession, forced labor is prohibited.” The list of labor rights defined by the 1993 Constitution of the Russian Federation includes not only the proclaimed freedom of work, but also the right addressed to each person (outside his legal relationship with the state through the category of “citizenship”) to freely choose his work, depending on his abilities and received profession (qualification). In modern Russia, the guarantee of the right to free skilled labor is regulated by the norms of industry legislation, which in recent years has been subject to significant adjustments. In May (2018) Decree of the President of the Russian Federation No. 204 “On National Goals and Strategic Tasks of the Development of the Russian Federation for the Period Until 2024” and national projects adopted on its basis, including to increase productivity and support employment, the task was set and identified the main directions of breakthrough socio-economic development, entering the TOP-5 of the largest economies in the world. Analyzing legislation, statistics and examples of law enforcement practice, the authors show not only the positive aspects of the implementation of modern labor relations, but also identify the main unresolved problems in the implementation of constitutional provisions in the field of labor relations in capitalist Russia: low wages, high unemployment, violation of conditions labor and collective agreements between workers and employers, etc.). The article also examines legal uncertainties, including partial legislative gaps, legal conflicts, inaccuracies in legislative formulations giving rise to violations of citizens’ constitutional rights in the field of labor relations.
