2015. No. 2. P. 76–91 [issue contents]
Modern global space is a new reality that improves not only the means of people`s interactions but influences the principles of organizing the production and labor relations. Under the conditions of economic modernization and globalization, some non-standard forms of employment have been appearing. The research of already formed legal patterns allows working out non-typical ones meeting the needs of the modern world. Thus, non-typical legal relations have already been functioning for a long time in labor law and at the same time more and more new non-traditional forms of employment appear. Modern methods of organizing business cooperation and social communication influence the sphere of labor cause to appear new effective forms of employment. Because of the demands of modern society, itis important to consider these changes that some classic institutions of labor law are exposed to. Forexample, concluding employment agreements for performing specific work for a certain period of time now is not an exception but a rule. A new effective form of employment is a distant employment that has already found legal regulation in this country. The model of distant employment eliminates the existing gaps in regulating non-typical labor relationship. Today it is important to renew the Russian labor law and adjust it to the process of appearing and developing new labor relations and forms of labor organization. Similar relations can serve as a legal base to a certain extent. However, it is important to disclose legal background of distant employment and features separating it from other similar legal phenomena that have become a prototype of distance employment to a certain extent. Thus, an attempt of the analysis of relations has been taken in this article such as: working hours, work at home (similarities and differences of home and distant labor are given), working place, self-employment, workby call (different forms of such labor are shown), an agreement “zero hours” (a labor treaty without anycontent is analyzed), a treaty “minimum-maximum” and others. The basis for the research is the norms not only of Russian but foreign legislation. In this work, special aspects of distant work are defined. It isnoted that the examples of distant management of labor resources demand the further development of regulations of worker’s labor function.
