Abstract: The paper deals with the theoretical problem of the development of regularities and principles of the formation of socially responsible behavior in the labor relations. The problem is induced from the conspicuous lack of scientific discourse on the theoretical consideration involving social responsibility as a phenomenon of labor economics and the relevant processes and the prerequisites for its formation. The paper suggests the structure of the regularities and principles of the formation of social responsibility in labor-related areas. The set of the regularities proposed includes the function specialization based on different risk perception, the meritocratic causation of statuses and roles and the coordination imperative due to interdependence of the labor agents. The regularities derive from the real convergence of partnership and paternalism and claim as the main non-linear dependencies in the structure of labor relations. They must be implemented in accordance with certain principles: solidarity, subsidiarity, freedom and trust. The regularities and principles specified are formulated on the grounds of identifying dialectical interpenetration and interaction of constructive and destructive types of labor relations.
Key words: social responsibility, labor relations, regularities, principles, agent.
