05/ 06/ 2024
  On 16 May 2024, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine approved the Procedure for Conscription of Citizens for Military Service During Mobilization and amended the Procedure for Organization and Maintenance of Military Registration (Amendments). The Amendments, among other things, detail employers existing obligations during mobilization and establish the new ones. Key changes If the company receives the relevant order from the territorial center of recruitment (TCR) and/or relevant military administration, the companys CEO is obliged to do the following: Issue an order to notify the relevant employees and appoint the responsible persons Organize the notification through the companys responsible persons by delivering summonses against signatures or sending the notification order by post, as the case may be Provide information support during mobilization Notify the TCR in writing within three days of the results of the notification and the employees compliance with the requirements of the law Ensure that the employees arrive at the TCR by (i) transporting them to the TCR collection points or military units, or (ii) releasing them from duties (for their independent arrival) Promptly inform the TCR of employees who (i) refused to receive summonses or (ii) submitted resignation letters. The companys responsible persons may serve summonses on the companys premises and in places where employees perform their work (duties). The companys CEO, based on the order of the TCR and/or the military administration, must issue an order to appoint its employees to the notification groups and ensure their participation in the notification activities. If a notification center is established on the companys premises, the companys CEO is responsible for organizing and controlling the work of such center. Companies must go through the necessary formalities in connection with a deferral from military service during reserved employees mobilization. Such formalities should be completed at the TCR where the companies are located. As a reminder, from 19 May 2024, the liability for violating the rules of military registration and laws on defence and mobilization has been increased (for more details, please see here).
