Rostrud explained how to pay salaries for April
According to Rostrud’s explanations, wages for non-working April should be more than just “bare salary”. They also explained to employees how to switch to a remote site in order to avoid conflicts with the employer.

According to the STOPKORONAVIRUS.RF Telegram channel, the salary for April should correspond to the level of the usual salary, so if the employee worked in the office with the usual working time standard and when performing all standard tasks. Holidays are also paid normally.

The employer also has no right to cut salaries due to coronavirus and send on vacation without maintenance. Moreover, the employee has the right to refuse to transfer his leave for the period of non-working days. But if the vacation coincided with non-working days, then the coinciding days will not be postponed to a later date.

The employer cannot refuse to pay salaries for April. Exceptions can be only in the case of removal from work due to the fault of the employee, absenteeism or temporary disability. At the same time, Rostrud clarifies that salary reduction can be, but only in case of agreement of the parties. There are also difficulties with dismissal: until April 30, termination of employment contracts is possible only at the initiative of the employee, by agreement of the parties, as well as due to the expiration of fixed-term employment contracts during this period.

Experts also explain that when transferring to a remote location, you need to conclude an additional agreement to the employment contract. At the same time, the organization of remote work falls entirely on the employer, and in this mode, all payments and guarantees required by the labor code are preserved.
