Russian edition of the ILO Minimum Wage Policy Guide Released

In recent years, many countries have established or strengthened minimum wages to eliminate unduly low pay and promote decent work. In this context, governments from all parts of the world, as well as employers' and workers' organizations, have asked the ILO for information on a wide range of practical issues.

The Minimum Wage Policy Guide is based on existing ILO standards and the diversity of international practice. It has been published in the ILO main website, in English, to provide information on key questions of good practice and highlight different choices that can be made depending on national preferences and country circumstances.

Given the fact, that wage issues are high on the Decent Work agenda in the sub-region, ILO Office for Eastern Europe and Central Asia has translated the Minimum Wage Policy Guide into Russian as part of the support provided to our constituents.

The Russian edition is available on the ILO DWT-CO website from June 2017 on. Main messages are that an efficient wage-setting mechanism should take into account empirical evidence that social dialogue can help find the balance between the legitimate needs of both workers and enterprises and that special attention should be paid to coverage and compliance issues in order to make sure that no one is left behind.
