What threatens and what affects the interruption of employment
As it was before
Everything changed a few years ago. In 2006, a bill was submitted to the Duma for consideration, according to which the notion of not a continuous length of service, but a general one, comes to the fore. Previously, the length of continuous work experience depended on the amount in which a person would receive payments on a temporary disability card. If the continuous length of service was up to 5 years, they paid 60% of the salary, from 5 to 8 years - 80%, more than 8 years - 100% payment. Naturally, working people wanted the transition from one job to another to take as little time as possible. In this part, a limit was set - no more than 21 calendar days in case of dismissal at will and for no apparent reason. For those who were dismissed by the employer, this time increased to 1 month.
In connection with this, earlier transfers from one institution to another were organized. For example, this concerned educators, for whom the concept of pedagogical experience is of special importance.
Since January 1, 2007, according to paragraph 1 of Art. 16 of Law N 255-FZ, the amount of the allowance for a sick leave or child care for up to 3 years does not depend on the total continuous work experience, but on the length of the insurance period. That is, when determining the amount of benefits, all the years when a person worked and were subject to compulsory insurance are summed up. The insured person is a person who is covered by the state pension insurance, that is, everyone who has a certificate of state pension insurance. Thus, a person who had worked for 17 years, retired, went to work in half a year, then went to a hospital, and he was paid him 60%, because he began to count the continuous work again. According to the last law, the sick leave will be paid 100%. And this is true.
The length of service will not be interrupted if you join the labor exchange no later than two months after your dismissal.
Thus, now the work experience is calculated not continuously, as it was before, but in total, regardless of the duration of the break.
However, as before, the length of service remains relevant for obtaining a pension in the future. According to the Labor Law of the Russian Federation, it is enough to have 5 years of experience for calculating a pension, regardless of whether it was interrupted or not. When calculating pensions, the continuous length of service does not play a role. The total length of service is taken into account when contributions to the Pension Fund of the Russian Federation were made.
