As explained in state Duma Committee on labor, social policy and veterans ‘ Affairs, before the labor code has guaranteed to all workers, regardless of age, one paid working day every three years that could be spent on something to check their health.

However, this provision is at odds with the recommendations of the Ministry of health, according to which citizens upon reaching forty years of age must undergo a medical examination annually. Deputies believe the law will encourage people to undergo physical examinations, to promote health and increase life expectancy of the Russians.

the Law does not apply to citizens of pre-retirement and retirement age, because for them the labour code provides two additional days off per year to undergo medical examination. They also are paid by the employer.
