The purpose of this study is to identify problems in labor relationship in the Russian Federation. The authors use the term ‘labor fraud’. There is a differentiation from the fraud in general criminal sense. There is a necessity to introduce criminal responsibility for ‘labor frauds’. Similar experience of foreign countries is considered in a positive way. Among main conclusions derived from the work it is to provide the following theses:
 The constitutional right of employees to receive compensation for labor is not protected fully. Civil and administrative legal responsibility is not sufficient to realize this right fully;
 The solution of the problem on the observance of employees’ rights in full should be based on the achievements of legal science, in particular, science of labor and criminal law;
 The actual legal status of the employee provided by the law and its implementation mechanism brings the labor relationship to a new level which positively affects the reputation of the welfare state.
