MOSCOW, January 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Ministry of Labour and Social Protection has presented to the government a bill, which includes in the system of obligatory social insurance foreign citizens, who have a status of staying temporarily in Russia.
The Izvestia daily writes the bill refers to the foreigners who do not have residence or temporary stay permits in Russia. The bill will bound employers to pay for their foreign staff the insurance payments for cases of their sickness or maternity.
Thus, employers will have to pay for the sick list to migrants, and the labour migrants will receive the right for free medical assistance.
The tariff for insurance contributions for foreign citizens will make 1.8 percent of their wages, while for the Russian citizens the tariff is 2.8 percent.
Head of Russia’s Labour Confederation Boris Kravchenko says those suggestions are an attempt to bring closer employment conditions for foreign and Russian citizens in employers’ expenses.
The newspaper refers to the Russian Federal Migration Service as reporting the number of people staying temporarily in the Russian territory and employed for at least six months makes 1.2 million.
According to the government’s lawmaking plan for 2014, the ministry of labour’s bill may be presented to the State Duma during the current spring session.
