3 min read

In the context of the growing threat of the spread of infection around the world, countries where there is a potential danger of its importation are promptly taking additional preventive measures. Russia is one of these countries. And although in our country the official statistics provided by Rospotrebnadzor, as of March 20, has only 199 confirmed cases of coronavirus infection, anti-epidemic and preventive measures are gaining momentum. Thus, the federal and regional authorities, transferred to a high alert mode, are increasingly calling on employers to take auxiliary measures, including transferring workers to a remote mode of work, if there are technical and organizational capabilities for this. Thermal Detection system can help an organization to find potentially sick and infect employees.

How Offices and Workers are coping with the Epidemic?

But it turned out that not all employers are yet ready for the prompt implementation of such a measure, since they see difficulties in formalizing the appropriate transition to a remote mode of work. The situation is also complicated by the fact that the current norms of the Labor Code do not allow making unambiguous conclusions regarding the legal procedure for such a transfer. It contains norms regulating certain nuances of labor relations in the event of an emergency that hinders work, but there is no indication of the possibility of combining work under the main contract with teleworking.

transfer of an employee without his consent for a period of up to one month to a job not stipulated by an employment contract with the same employer to prevent an epidemic or eliminate its consequences.

the employer attracts an employee to work overtime without his consent when performing urgent work in emergency conditions, in particular an epidemic. Attracting employees to work on weekends and non-working holidays without their consent to perform urgent work in an epidemic in the presence of a threat to life or normal living conditions of the entire population or its part.

If the features of teleworking, including the procedure for accepting an employee for it, drawing up the necessary documents, organizing work, etc., do not raise any special questions, since they are clearly regulated, then the specifics of processing the transfer of an employee already working under an employment contract creates difficulties for employers and personnel services. This is due to the fact that the country does not contain direct norms regulating this process precisely during the epidemic.

As time went by, it became increasingly difficult to run an efficient management of his clinic. This caused inconveniences such as storage or space problems causing loss of medical records and clinical documentation, which represents 14% of the difficulties our clients had.

When the number of patients grows, it is not only about confirming and notifying patients, our clients did not say that a large part of their problems was keeping track of their patients’ payments, the sessions performed, paid or paid in full, Identifying what type of discount or agreement the patient belonged to, which meant a difficulty in balancing the boxes and having a more efficient management.
