Difference between internal alignment and internal alignment.

Many people work in combination and part-time. What can they do in each case?


Under combination in labor legislation RF is understood as the performance by an employee hired by an organization of other work under an additional employment contract - in the same or another firm. In the first case, the combination will be internal, in the second - external.

Additional work is performed by a person at the end of the main working time. It can be anything, but it should be suitable for the employee and provided by the employer. But concurrently it is impossible to register:

  • minor citizens;
  • people working in hazardous work, if the same working conditions are also part-time;
  • people whose work is associated with driving vehicles, if they will do the same work under an additional contract;
  • security guards, as well as heads of security firms;
  • civil servants;
  • Government employees;
  • judges, lawyers, prosecutors, police, FSB, foreign intelligence services, military personnel,
  • employees of the Central Bank in some positions;
  • workers in education, medicine, pharmaceuticals, culture.

In some cases, it is impossible to hire people for top management positions in companies.

At the request of the employee, the data on the new position, which he will receive as part-time job, can be entered in his work book. In addition, with internal part-time jobs, a new personal card is also issued to the employee. A new personnel number must also be issued for the employee.

Part-time wages are paid in proportion to the additional working hours, as well as in correlation with the production rates and other criteria that are fixed in the employment contract.

Part-time leave should be granted concurrently with the entry into the main position.

Termination of a contract for part-time work at the initiative of the employer is possible if another employee is hired for the position held by a person in addition to the main job, for which it will be the main one. In addition, the employer must notify the part-time employee of its intention to invite another specialist to the relevant position 2 weeks before the proposed termination of the employment contract. The contract for additional work can also be urgent - as soon as it ends, the labor relationship between the part-time employee and his employer may legally terminate.

Combining is also additional work, but in all cases in the current company. That is, it cannot be external, it is always internal. A person should be engaged in combining within the framework of the main working time.

For registration of combination, a new employment contract is not concluded, but an additional agreement is signed to the current contract. Or an order is issued by the head of the employing company, which indicates the volume, content and frequency of the alignment work. This document must also be signed by the employee and supplemented by an agreement approving the amount of additional payment for labor.

Documents that the personnel department of the employing company updates during the second job (for example, personal card and personnel number) are not changed or supplemented when combined.

Termination of combining work is possible at any time both at the initiative of the employee and due to the desire of the employer. But in both cases, it is necessary to notify the other party in writing about the corresponding intention 3 days before the termination of the alignment activity. Termination of additional work by the employee is also possible due to the expiration of the terms established in the agreement with the employer.


The main difference between internal combination and internal combination is that in the first case a new employment contract is not signed, in the second it is necessarily signed. Based on this, the rights and obligations of employees for a particular option of additional work may differ.


Having studied the difference between internal alignment and internal combination, we will display the facts we have identified in the table.
