The State Assembly – Kurultai of the Republic of Bashkortostan submitted a corresponding initiative.
Any battle ends sooner or later, and the soldiers return to civilian life. The state provided significant benefits to those who risked their lives for the good of the country. However, as the Bashkirian deputies noted, the current rules do not protect against dismissal during downsizing of “combat veteran” workers. The Lugansk People’s Republic and the Lugansk People’s Republic from February 24, 2022, as well as the territories of the Zaporozhye region and the Kherson region from September 30, 2022.”
According to the initiators of the project, this is a gap that needs to be filled. Remember that, in accordance with current regulations, in the event of a reduction in the number or workforce, the preferential right to remain at work is granted to workers with higher labor productivity and qualifications. If labor productivity and qualifications are comparable, then the privileged categories listed in the law receive an advantage. The bill proposes to add combat veterans to such categories. Therefore, if the head of the company comes to mind that there are too many people in the company and it would be necessary to say goodbye to someone, he will not be able to simply reduce the veterans. Of course, if the proposed project is accepted.
In addition, the State Duma is now collecting comments on another bill providing benefits to war veterans. Those who, before being called up for military service in mobilization, worked in state organizations, are invited to be granted a priority right to enter a state organization for a position not lower than the one they held before entering military service under a contract (if it exists it is a corresponding vacancy).
As the developers of the project recall, today citizens who worked before entering military service in state organizations retain the right to return to service in the same organizations within three months after their dismissal. But nothing is said about returning to the state organization to the same or equivalent position, emphasize the authors of the initiative. Therefore, it is proposed to grant an additional benefit to those who were mobilized from a state organization and carried out combat missions.
