The Verkhovna Rada has passed the law “On amendments to certain laws of Ukraine regarding the use of the labor of foreigners and stateless persons in Ukraine”, which simplifies the work permit for foreigners for employers.

As reported in Telegram Member of Parliament Yaroslav Zheleznyak, 266 people’s representatives voted for the law as a whole, reports Ukrinform.

As noted in the explanatory memorandum accompanying the document, the aim of the adoption of the law is to simplify the labor needs for employers, which can be met through the use of the labor force of foreigners and stateless persons, thereby ensuring equal working conditions for citizens of Ukraine and foreigners, eclipsing industrial relations, as well as improving legislation in this area and eliminating legal conflicts.

In particular, the grounds for issuing or extending the validity of permits to employ foreigners and stateless persons have been improved; refusal to issue or renew such permits; equal pay conditions were established for Ukrainian citizens as well as foreigners and stateless persons legally residing in Ukraine; a legal basis has been created for deploying the labor force of foreigners and stateless persons who are in Ukraine to study at Ukrainian educational institutions.

It also simplifies obtaining or extending the validity of permits for the employment of certain categories of foreign workers. Such authorization may be obtained by any means appropriate to the employer, including through the centers for the provision of administrative services.
