Keywords: Subject of labor law; labor relations; subordination of the employee


The article discusses some trends in the development of labor law in Russia, taking into account foreign experience. We consider relations that were not previously formally regulated by law (for example, those arising from actual admission to work by an unauthorized person) or regulated by civil law from the scope of labor law. We noted that in cases where it is impossible to draw a conclusion about the sectoral nature of contractual relations and dependence of the employee, the Labor Code of the Russian Federation prescribes that they should be considered as labor relations. We also discussed the study of the evolution of the employer’s power, subordination as a specific feature of labor relations. We came to conclusion that the new expansion of labor law should be based not on legal but rather on economic interrelations between employee and employer.
