The employee’s health is determined not only by his/her individual characteristics, such as, for example, age, gender, education and family status, but also by his/her contractual and working conditions. This study provides an estimates of the coefficients of logistic models for men and women in which health variables are the dependent variables, and the job conditions and individual characteristics of the employee are explanatory variables. Models were built using Russian Longitudinal Monitoring Survey data for 2018 which provide information about the health and job conditions of citizens of the Russian Federation. Several conclusions were received: Firstly, there is a significant relationship between contractual and working conditions and the health of workers of both sexes; Secondly, the same working and contractual conditions have different effects on the health of men and women; Thirdly, the health of male workers is determined only by contractual conditions, while the health of female workers is determined equally by contractual and working conditions. This study, coupled with other studies in the area of health inequality, is a material useful for personnel management, as well as in making managerial decisions regarding labor optimization and eliminating the process of staff turnover.
