Employers must from October 25, 2021 to February 25, 2022 switch to remote work at least 30% of their employees and contractors working under civil law contracts.
All employees over the age of 60 and those suffering from chronic diseases included in a special list (i.e. List of Diseases and Conditions Requiring Self-isolation) must be transferred to remote work. As previously, an exception has been made for those whose presence in the workplace is critical to the running of their organization.
Employees who have been vaccinated and those who fell ill with COVID less than six months ago do not need to be switched to remote work.
From October 25, 2021 onwards, employers must submit a weekly report on Mondays to account for the employees (contractors working under civil law contracts) who work remotely.
This report must be submitted electronically through your account on Moscow Mayor and Government website using the form provided in Appendix 4 to Moscow Mayor Decree № 12-UM dated March 5, 2020 Introducing a High Alert Regime. To get advice on how to submit this report, please feel free to call this number +7 (495) 870-72-98.
If there are changes in the employees/contractors under civil law contracts working remotely, updated information should be submitted on the day of such changes.
If there are no changes, there is no need to resubmit the information provided in the previous report.
Moscow Mayor also announced at least 80% of the total number of employees working in the service sector should be vaccinated by January 1, 2022, with the first vaccination dose received by December 1, 2021
