Labour Law < Back to services

It is not a secret that the existing labour law doesn't meet the requirements of the time. Ukraine still applies the Labour Code of the Ukrainian SSR, other subordinate legislation, departmental instructions which   have become obsolete already and cannot effectively protect rights and interests both employers and employees, as well as cannot settle relations between them. Explanations of Plenums of the Supreme Court concerning application of the labour law are mainly dated in 90s of the 20th century.

Such  «permanence and delay

of development» of the labour law, in our opinion, negatively affects investment appeal of the Ukrainian economy, restrains increase of jobs which  Ukraine is so much interested in. An explanation is simple and even trivial. Lack of legislative balance  in relations between an employee and employer, legislative domination of an employee’s  interests, much difficult  procedure of getting permits for non-resident employees deter investors and forth them to search for more permissive conditions  of doing business in other jurisdictions.

Labour law is one of Pravochyn’s  key practices  which we have been developing since foundation of the company and continue this dynamic process these days, expanding the list of services and improving them. During this time our specialists have gained considerable experience in consulting clients with regard to the labour law, conclusion, change and termination of employment contracts, development and legal support of conclusion of employment contracts (agreements), obtaining work permits, conducting negotiations between an employee and employer, representation of the client interests on labour disputes in courts.

Providing a complex legal support in labour law, Pravochyn always tries to prevent problems in the future and provide  clients with effective and rational decisions which practical realization will promote positive relations between an employee and employer.
