Remote mode of operation in Moscow

Oct, 27 2021

The Moscow mayor, by his own Decree, determined an obligation for employers to transfer employees to a remote order of activity in the period from October 25, 2021 to February 25, 2022. These measures are introduced in conjunction with the spread of coronavirus infection.

In accordance with the amendments, the established operating mode should be switched to:

– at least 30% of employees;

– all employees over the age of 60 who have illnesses, the list of which is established by the Department of Health of the capital. Exception: employees whose stay at work is particularly significant for the purpose of continuing the functioning of the organization.

What agreement was concluded with the person does not matter (an employment agreement or a civil agreement).

Certain conditions function in the relationship as a whole with the company’s staff.

Certain requirements do not apply to:

– companies whose work cannot be subject to restrictions in accordance with the Decree of the President of the Russian Federation dated 11.05.2020 No. 316.

If the data has not changed in any way, then there is no need to send this kind of reporting a second time.

For non-compliance with the laws on the transfer of employees to a remote order of activity, liability is provided according to the Administrative Code of the Russian Federation Article 6.1. in the form of a fine:

– for officials from 10 to 50 thousand rubles;

– for legal entities from 100 to 300 thousand rubles.
