Our Moscow office hosted a virtual roundtable for pro bono clients to address COVID-19 work related matters. The key topics included special rules that employers and employees must adhere to comply with the COVID-19 restrictions and regulations; recent changes to the Russian labor law allowing distant and agile working regimes; how to properly collect and share health data as required by the COVID-19 legislation; and how to be prepared for an unscheduled visit from the government authorities to inspect compliance with the COVID-19 restrictions and special rules.
The presentation included a lively Q&A session. More than 20 non-profits participated in the roundtable including Children’s Villages SOS Russia, a charity helping orphan children; NB, a children's neuroblastoma cancer foundation; Nochlezhka, a charity helping the homeless; Vtoroe Dykhanie (Second Breath), a charity helping people from socially vulnerable groups; Takie Dela (So It Goes), a charity promoting charitable activities and helping other charities; Vverkh (Step Up), a foundation offering education for pupils and graduates of psycho-neurological institutions; KPMG Charitable Foundation; Nuzhna Pomosch (Help Needed), a charitable foundation helping other charities; Bolshaya Peremena (Big Change), a charitable foundation and educational center for orphan children and orphanage graduates; and Our Children, a charity preventing social orphanhood and helping children without parental care. Many of them are our pro bono clients.
