Assessment and comparative analysis of the severity of Ukraine's legislation on employment protection


  • Y. Yuryk


The article presents the results of an evaluation of the severity of the legal protection of employment in Ukraine. In order to place the Ukrainian figures in the comparative context, the author uses the corresponding OECD methodology. Besides, an inter-country analysis of the basic elements of the employment protection legislation has been made, including: the list of possible reasons or grounds for dismissal; requirements for the procedure of employment termination; requirements for mandatory advance notification of dismissal with a specified interval and severance payments; additional requirements for collective dismissals; and regulation of temporary employment. The main finding of the study is the fact that, in Ukraine, the de jure regulation of employment is excessively severe. Further calculation of the indicators of employment protection based on empirical studies will make it possible to reveal the strength and direction of the impact of the current national labor legislation on the key indicators of Ukraine's labor market and develop proposals to reform the labor relations.
