We announce the first chapter of the series of Awara Russian Labor Guide, the chapter about Remote Working in Russia.
Remote Working (Work from Home) Becomes a Legal Option with Change in Russian Labor Law
The Russian President has April 8, 2013 signed into law amendments to the Labor Code introducing a new chapter On Remote Work.
This new law represents a significant change and modernization of the Russian labor laws, for it will now for the first time become legal to arrange work on a remote basis at employees home. From before there are in the Labor Code provisions about so-called “domestic work” but these provisions have had limited effect and have not in fact regulated the situation where employers hire people to work at homes or otherwise remotely beyond the office.
