Everything that happens with the coronavirus is used for competitive purposes against both Russia and, in the first place, against the Chinese.
A new Labour Code is being prepared in Ukraine, but it’s better to call it a law on slavery. While civilised countries make sure that people work as productively as possible, that is, give less time to the employer, work efficiently and productively, and spend more time with family and children, only in Ukraine, they believe that people should work around the clock.
Part of the recurring pro-Kremlin narrative showing Ukraine as a failed state.
In total, four draft labour laws are being considered in the Ukrainian Parliament. The final version of the law is not yet set, as discussions in the Verkhovna Rada are still ongoing. Still, 40 hours per week are left as basic working hours. For 16-18-year-olds, it is shorter by 4 hours. The right to a flexible work schedule is also granted with consent. Rest periods between work shifts should be at least 12 hours every 24 hours. There is no mention of round-the-clock work. The annual basic paid leave is granted for a period of 24 calendar days for each working year, which is counted from the date of the employment contract.
