3 percent of parents were in favor of a child leaving work extremely early, even before he reaches the age of 12. 6 percent consider work for 12- to 13-year-olds acceptable.
35 percent consider it possible to conclude an employment contract with a 14-15-year-old adolescent. From the point of view of 27 percent of Russians, employment is allowed from the age of 16-17. 12 percent are sure that it is necessary to go to work only after reaching the age of majority, that is, from the age of 18, 12 percent are sure. 9 percent believe teens shouldn’t work until they get a profession.
It is interesting that fathers consider early employment acceptable (before the age of 15), while mothers advocate a later start of a work biography, after the age of 16. Mothers are also more likely to believe that the child first needs to get a profession, and only then start working.
One of the reasons for the growing confidence that 14- and 15-year-olds can work is the spread of remote work. The labor legislation of the Russian Federation also provides for a number of guarantees for minors.
