Based on these provisions, the paper analyzes the anti-corruption nature of the articles 2, 21, 22, 56, 57, 137, 138, 142, 3491, 3492 of the Labor Code of the Russian Federation, improvement of the anti-corruption labor legislation is offered. The paper investigates the methodological foundations of corruption in labor relations and the methodology of the fight against corruption in organizations.

Also, to overcome corruption in organizations, it is necessary to impute the duties of each organization to draw up annual work plans for combating and preventing corruption to minimize and (or) eliminate the consequences of corruption offenses. Also, the anti-corruption policy of the organization should include a list of specific activities that the organization plans to implement to prevent and combat corruption, in addition, it is necessary to develop a methodology for measuring corruption in labor law. The author analyzed the corruption of violations of labor law in the classical (solid) corruption, examined the relationship between the concepts of “conflicts of interest” and “labor disputes”, their relationship, peculiarities and differences. There is no doubt that the basis of overcoming corruption in labor relations is a high degree of protection of employees by the provisions of labor legislation.
