On 22 November 2021, significant changes to the Russian Labor Code came into force regarding the use of electronic documents in labor relations. Now, employers have the right to use an electronic workflow in relation with employees without duplicating personnel documents on paper. With regard to distant employees (for whom an electronic workflow was introduced on 1 January 2021), employers can either continue to use the previously introduced workflow procedure (including the exchange of documents by email) or apply the rules established by the new law.
