PROCEEDINGS IN PETTY OFFENCE CASES RELATED TO EMPLOYEES AND OTHER PERSONS ENGAGING IN GAINFUL OCCUPATION
In the study, the proceedings in petty offences have been described in terms of the tasks imposed by law on work inspectors. Liability for an offence is a criminal liability sensu largo, and the proceedings in petty offence cases are similar to criminal proceedings. In cases provided for in the act, a work inspector conducts explanatory investigation in the course of which he may impose a fine on the offender, be satisfied with applying educational measures only or decide to file a motion for punishment in the court. In the latter case, after instituting the proceedings by the court, the work inspector acts as a public prosecutor. Issuing a sentence punishing for an offence, the court, as a rule, specifies the character of legal relationship between the employer and the wronged person.
