Abstract: On the basis of general theoretic ideas the basic and additional functions of legal facts in labor law are examined. Except of the basic function of legal facts, consisting of ability to generate, change and stop legal relationships, in the mechanism of the legal regulation of labour and related relations there are such legal facts which are capable: 1) to provide existence of lasting labour legal relationships; 2) to interfere the development of legal consequences; 3) to cancel legal value of other actual circumstances; 4) to halt realization of basic duties and rights for the subjects of legal relationships; 5) to restore rights and interests of sides of labour contract in the case of their violation.

According to the social purpose of this branch of law, legal facts in the labour law have a very important function – to execute of guarantees of legality. In addition, labour law execute also the function of the preliminary affecting conduct of subjects.

Whereas the commencement of labour relations, first of all, is connected with such legal fact as labor contract, the specifics of the labour law, as a branch, is the presence of an individual regulation.

Legal facts should maximally accurately identify and adequately reflect the social situation, the subject of legal regulation, as well as ensure its hold. This is the main requirement to the legal facts and the essence of another function of legal facts in labour law – identification function.

All of the analysed functions of legal facts give the grounds to assert about the independent role of legal facts in the mechanism of the legal regulation of labour relations.

Keywords: function; legal fact, legal regulation mechanism, labor legal relations
