April 29—Unemployment compensation must be paid twice each calendar month unless recipients agree to monthly payments, under legislation published April 25 (Law No. 292-VIII) to amend provisions of the social insurance act.
The new law also revised provisions that govern unemployment benefit lump-sum distribution. Ukraine's new law stipulates that the payment of the lump-sum unemployment benefit in the form of a subsidy to start up a business must be made within 14 days of the date of the state registration of the new business.
Ukrainian authorities have enacted a series of amendments to the country's labor legislation this year, including last month's signing by President Petro Poroshenko of Law No. 219-VIII, which cut mandatory social insurance contributions to 40 percent of the regular rate in 2015 and to 60 percent in 2016.
