Economic Crisis and Labour Law – Professional Attorneys-at-Law Protect Your Interests


Global economic crisis has just begun. Such kind of financial instability at a global market level will last till 2010. It comes out from the most optimistic judgmental forecast.

The leading wave of personnel reduction is going on in Ukraine. Business optimize spending, including expends for upkeep of personnel. We provide legal support and consultations in such aspects:

  • grounds and procedure of suspending labour relations
  • procedures and terms of bonus payment stopping, salary decries and other modifications of essential labour conditions;
  • transfer of employees to other work;
  • unavoidable delay and its legal implementation;
  • registration in Public Employment Service, cash benefit receiving;
  • labour union’s functions in protections of employees’ interest;
  • solving contentious case between employers and employees.

Attorneys-at-law of the Law Firm “Natalia Subota and Partners” always play an active role in labour law enforcement and are the well-known experts in this field. Recently we took part in following public panel discursions:

  • an expert observation concerning personnel reduction is given for news “TSN.Novyny” on TV channel 1+1;
  • expert analysis of advantages and disadvantages of new Labour Law Bill is made for news “Vikna-Novyny” on the TV channel CTV;
  • panel discursion is held with the authors of legislative initiative - the members of the Supreme Council of Ukraine, with the representatives of labour union and employers concerning new Labour Law Bill on the TV chennal UT-1 in program “Ukrainskyi Vybir”;
  • comparative analyses of Ukrainian and French labour legislation is given for magazine “Pratsia a Zakon”;
  • the presentation of “ideal” collective agreement for media outlet is held in press-agency “RBK-Ukraine”.

Practical experience shows that lost cases happens less frequent, then timely decisions, which were not found. Even when the crisis goes on.
