On the implementation of electronic personnel workflow
The Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of the Russian Federation, along with the participation of representatives of social partnership, business and authorities discussed the transition of Russian companies to the electronic personnel workflow. The initiators of such a transition were the heads of companies from the banking sector, IT-technologies, where work is related to the use of information technology.
Whereas, the Ministry of Labor of Russia prepared a number of proposals based on a two-year discussion of this topic at various venues, and expressed readiness for dialogue with the parties to social partnership, so that employers and trade unions could present their position.
The Ministry of Labor of Russia proposes to give the right to the employer to make a decision on the full or partial maintenance of documents related to personnel work in electronic form.
This decision will be taken by the employer taking into account only the opinion of the representative body of employees.
Thus, along with paper document circulation, companies will have the opportunity to maintain personnel documents electronically.
At the same time, all costs for their management will be assigned solely to the employer. In addition, it is emphasized that documents in electronic form and on paper should be of equal legal force. And the employer must, at the request of the employee, submit documents created in electronic form to him/her on paper.
