Employees on the "remote" offset the cost of work

Employees on the "remote" offset the cost of work

The costs associated with remote work may begin to compensate for the Russians. The corresponding bill with amendments to the Labor Code has already been supported by the Ministry of Labor.

According to information "Izvestia», The Labor Code may be supplemented with provisions on teleworking. In this case, there are three modes of "remote": permanent, temporary and combined. The document was submitted to parliament for consideration on June 16, and the State Duma should receive responses to it by July 16.

The new law should fix the rights of employees to rest, the opportunity not to be in touch around the clock. Also, for an employee who refuses to switch to a temporary remote mode, some consequences will apply. True, according to the Ministry of Labor, some concepts require clarification.

At the same time, the amendments reflect the ability of employees to use personal equipment, programs and information security tools for work. At the same time, the employee will be able to compensate for some of the costs, but this provision is still at the discretion of the employer. According to one of the authors of the document, the first deputy chairman of the committee on labor, social policy and veterans affairs Mikhail Tarasenko, the employee will be able to request reimbursement of electricity costs, depreciation of the personal computer that he uses every day, and so on.

The employer can, by mutual agreement, increase the employee's salary by the amount of compensation costs. In total, before the pandemic in Russia, about 30 thousand people worked at the "remote location". With the introduction of self-isolation, the number of telecommuting workers has grown to five million.
