Abstract

The paper discusses problems of socio-economic security of employees working in small businesses. The role of employment protection parameters in personal job satisfaction is defined. The analysis is based on the methodological approach to labor protection within a “decent work” concept. Following the results of the survey of employees in small businesses in Moscow we describe most vulnerable areas in labor relations as well as the compensation mechanisms of corporate type solidarity.
