CHANGES IN REGULATION OF RESERVATION OF PERSONS ELIGIBLE FOR MILITARY SERVICE

On 23 November 2022, the President signed the Law of Ukraine “On Amendments to the Law of Ukraine “On Mobilisation Preparation and Mobilisation” Concerning Reservation of Persons Eligible for Military Service for the Period of Mobilisation and Martial Law” (“Law”). The Law will come into force the next day after its publication.

The Law introduces, inter alia, the following changes regarding reservation of persons eligible for military service:

  • reserved employees, with their consent, can be called up for military service
  • persons subject to reservation comprise those employed at the enterprises that produce goods, perform works, and provide services for the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and other military formations, as well as those employed at the enterprises that are critical to the functioning of the economy and livelihood of the population in a particular period
  • reservation of persons eligible for military service under the martial law can be conducted in line with the lists submitted by enterprises under the procedure determined by the Ukrainian Government

Earlier, the Law envisaged the possibility of reservation only for those employed at the enterprises that have mobilisation tasks (orders), and there was no possibility for employees to be reserved under the lists submitted by the enterprises.

At the same time, please pay attention that, as of now, there are no criteria and procedure for determining enterprises that are critical to the functioning of the economy and livelihood of the population in a particular period.

That is, employers will be able to use the benefits of the Law after the Ukrainian Government adopts a respective by-law.

We will keep you up to date if anything changes.
