The purpose of the research is to provide a legal analysis of the labour activities of persons with disabilities in the Russian Federation. The authors consistently address employment issues of the persons with disabilities; also based on a review of Russian judicial practices, they formulate recommendations for the harmonisation of this vital area of labour relations. The research used the methods of system-oriented analysis, content analysis and comparative analysis. Based on the scientific analysis, the features and prospects of the development of legal regulation of employment of persons with disabilities were identified, and the comparative analysis method to identify areas of practice in the application of Russian federal and regional laws in Russia. At the beginning of the article, a historical excursion to the creation of the institution of labour relations with the involvement of persons with disabilities is provided; it starts from the second half of the 18th century until the end of the Soviet era, in the 1990s of the 20th century. Further, based on an analysis of the main legal instruments regulating the specified area of relations, the authors consider issues of the legislative consolidation of the procedure for quoting jobs for persons with disabilities, and also analyse the legal forms of protecting the labour rights of persons with disabilities and preventing discrimination on the basis of disability. Special focus is put on exercising control over the fulfilment by employers of the legal requirements concerning the provision of disabled people with jobs according to the established quota, as well as compliance with the related requirements established by sanitary rules. In Russia, the realisation of the right to work of disabled people is regulated not only at the federal but also regional level. Top priority is given to the regulation of labour relations involving disabled people and creation of the most favourable conditions for them in the constituent entities of the Russian Federation. In conclusion, the authors provide a list of proposals and recommendations for improving the legal regulation of labour relations in the Russian Federation involving disabled people.
