The law in the Ukraine has been changed so that employers rather than potential employees are charged by temporary agencies according to a story from the Ukrainian National News Agency.
Deputy Head of Administration of the President - the President of the Cabinet of Ministers of Irina Akimova, said in a statement this week that this provision is contained in the law on employment, signed by Viktor Yanukovych in July.
"The law brings the activities of recruitment agencies in Ukraine in line with European standards. In other words, payment for services of recruitment agencies will be conducted by the employer" said Akimov.
She noted that the law was changed to take into account a large number of complaints by citizens who paid staffing agency money, but for whom work was never found. "Services will be paid for only after the employer enters into an employment contract," explained the Deputy Head of Adminstration.
According to Akimov, the employment package also addressed other pressing issues. In particular, age discrimination and the level of unemployment among young people and people approaching retirement age, the disabled and parents with children with disabilities.
