Two months of self-isolation has led to the fact that the remote work, which was considered a whim, a privilege and a concession on the part of the head, has become the norm for the majority of Muscovites – those whose presence in the workplace cannot be called necessary. As already noted in conversation with the correspondent “MK” psychologists and career counselors, after the end of the pandemic, the question will arise edge – many people do not want to go back to the office, because she knew their duties they can perform from house with this same efficiency. Have thought about it and deputies of the Moscow city Duma at plenary session on Wednesday 27 may 2020, the capital’s Parliament approved the relevant amendments to the Labour code of the Russian Federation.

As the Deputy noted Lyudmila Guseva, one of the authors of the initiative, today it is impossible to ignore the obvious: in the medium term, remote work will become the norm for many types of businesses.

– This is a global trend, and it is quite understandable in the conditions of large cities, where very high costs associated with renting office space, the need to contain the corresponding infrastructure, considerable time spent on the road to work and back. Even for Moscow, with its developed transport network, these issues are highly relevant. Now is the time to create all the necessary conditions to both employer and employed people could choose the form of cooperation, corresponding to modern realities, keeping a mutual balance of rights and obligations, – explained Gusev.

in Other words, we are talking about what to do work in the remote format is a normal variant. It is important that the employee, who is “on udalenka”, circulated all required corporate benefits (e.g. health policy), as well as to its mode of operation is normally perceived by colleagues – otherwise there is a risk of conflict due to the fact that working remotely will be considered “halachically”.

Therefore, a reasonable step is to consolidate the realities of a new time law. The essence of the proposal of deputies of the MHD changes to article 57 of the Labor code, which regulated the content of the employment contract. The bill proposes to amend the said article amended to include as one of the additional conditions of the employment contract the possibility of temporary or partial execution of an employee in the online form.

Also in the employment contract must be defined a number of additional conditions: the period during which the employee temporarily performs work in a remote form or schedule of work “on remote” mode of working time, ways and means of communication between employer and employee, he explained the MHD Alexey Shaposhnikov.

the Capital’s Parliament has no authority to change the content of the Labour code of the Russian Federation is a decision to be taken at the Federal level. Therefore, the plenary session adopted the resolution “On the draft Federal law “On introducing amendments to article 57 of the Labor code of the Russian Federation”, and it allows in the near future to submit a bill for consideration in the State Duma. There will be made – to secure the right to “udalenka” the law or not.
