This article analyses the results of shadow remuneration research carried out in the Novosibirsk Region in 2008, 2010 and 2015, and reveals specific features of shadow wages, involvement of employees in the given remuneration method, its scale, dynamics and motivation for its implementation. The findings indicate that shadow wage rates are not only steadily growing, but they are also evolving into a steady socioeconomic phenomenon. Shadow wages are mostly widespread in trade, construction, service sectors, and in recent years their number has been growing in manufacturing, agricultural processing, service industry and transportation. In this research we suggest a series of measures to reduce the prevalence of shadow wages.
