Labour Code of RF No. 197-FZ of December 30, 2001 (as amended)

COMMENTS: The Labour Code of the Russian Federation, Law No. 197-FZ of December 30, 2001, provides the definition of "workplace.” Law No. 87-FZ, the principal tobacco control law, bans smoking in workplaces, unless in a designated area. However, unlike the Labour Code, Law No. 87-FZ does not include a definition of "workplace.”

The law has been amended several times, most recently in November of 2009.

To the best of our knowledge, all laws provided here are in effect as of April 23, 2024 unless otherwise noted.
