The Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine’s parliament, has passed a law allowing businesses to ‘re-serve’ employees meant to be conscripted to the military, the first deputy head of the parliamentary committee on finance, tax and customs policy, Yaroslav Zheleznyak, reported via Telegram on Nov. 4.

"The long-awaited law on reservation of employees liable for military service who are not subjected to mobilization has finally been adopted,” he wrote.

“290 parliamentarians voted in its favor.”

Zheleznyak emphasized two key aspects of transparency introduced by the law:

  • empowering the Government to develop a new procedure, including criteria for classifying business as crucial;
  • allowing the reservation of employees by businesses that are not involved in mobilization, enabling them to continue working.
