Compensate costs on the "remote" offer in Russia
Soon, Russians may begin to reimburse some of the costs that arise from remote work. The Federation of Independent Trade Unions of Russia proposed to amend the Labor Code to compensate the costs of electricity, communications, the Internet and some computer programs.
