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.
