On July 1, 2022, the Law of Ukraine “On amendments to certain laws of Ukraine on the optimization of labor relations” was adopted (the draft law was registered under No. 7251). The Law provides for a number of changes for employers:

  • the list of information which employees must be notified before starting work has been expanded;

  • alternative methods of familiarizing the employee with the documents of the employer can be used under the agreement of the employer and the employee;

  • the obligations of the employer upon dismissal of the employee are clarified (performance of a settlement and the issuance of written notification about the amounts accrued and paid to the employee);

  • the right of the employee to transfer monetary compensation for unused annual vacation days to another company is abolished;

  • the period of payment of salary to the employee for vacation leave has been changed (the payment must be made before the start of the vacation);

  • restrictions on granting annual leave under martial law are clarified;

  • for employees who left the territory of Ukraine or acquired the status of internally displaced persons, unpaid leave for a period not exceeding 90 calendar days is introduced under martial law;
