Reporting on quota fulfillment
We would like to draw your attention to the fact that by February 1, 2014 employers with staff of more than 20 employees ought to inform the authorities of the State Employment Service on the fulfillment of quota of work places for citizens having additional employment guarantees.
We would like to remind that according to the Law of Ukraine “On Employment of the Population” the quota of work places for citizens having additional employment guarantees for employers with staff of more than 20 employees is set at the rate of 5 per cent of average headcount for the previous year (since a report shall be submitted for the year 2013, the average headcount is to be counted for the year 2012).
Please note that the categories of citizens having additional employment guarantees shall include, particularly (the complete list see para. 1 of Article 14 of the Law of Ukraine “On Employment of the Population”):
- youth, graduated from schools, vocational technical schools and institutions of higher education (during six months after the graduation) and who are employed for the first time;
- individuals, who have 10 or less years before reaching the pension age according to Article 26 of the Law of Ukraine “On Mandatory State Pension Insurance”;
- one of the parents or an individual, who substitutes them and: has children under 6 years old; brings up alone a child under 14 years old or a disabled child; maintains a person disabled since childhood child and/or an invalid of the I group;
- individuals, who have reached the age of 15 years, and upon the consent of one of parents or an individual, who substitutes them, may be employed as an exception.
The standard form according to which the information on employment of abovementioned citizens shall be submitted has been approved by the Order of the Ministry of Social Policy of May 16, 2013 No. 271 (“The Procedure of Submitting the Information on Employment of Citizens Having Additional Employment Guarantees to Territorial Authorities of the State Employment Service”). This order prescribes the procedure of quota calculation (since the year 2013 employers shall do it on their own) and filling of such information.
The above commentary presents the general statement for information purposes only and as such may not be practically used in specific cases without professional advice.
