Chapter Summary

The branches of law, conceived as parts of the legal system of Russia, play an important role in the systematization of the law for practical purposes and in teaching law and, also, in the operation of law as such in legislative and judicial practice. In the years between 1987 and 1992, there was an attempt to introduce the concept of employment agreements as an alternative civil law form of labor relationships. In 1996, court practice in labor disputes began to change. In cases of delays in the payment of wages, a system of indexation has been applied based on the indexation of the minimum wage, adapted to reflect inflation from time to time. The existence of branches of law may also result in conflicts among different branches. The 1991 Law On the Environment provides that acts violating environmental legislation and causing damage to the environment are crimes.
