We will try to understand it, perhaps, the most important question that at any check you accurately knew whether the state inspector of work exceeds the authority. So, one after another.

The inspector can direct this requirement only in the presence of the conclusion of state examination of working conditions;

The state inspector of work at identification of violation of the labor legislation has the right to issue you the instruction which is subject to obligatory execution. If you consider that this instruction is illegal, can appeal against it in court within ten days from the moment of receiving.

The state inspector of work has to consider confidential a source of any complaint and therefore it is not obliged to report to you about the one who made the complaint about you.

the State inspectors of work inspect any organizations in all territory of the Russian Federation irrespective of them organizationally - legal forms and forms of ownership. the state inspector of work can notify by

At inspection check on the presence the employer or his representative. But if he considers that such notice can cause damage to efficiency of control, he can not inform you of the stay at the enterprise.
