“The amendments (to the Labor Code. – Ed.) will close the gaps in labor legislation, due to which the employer is now not obliged in such situations (when an employee enters military service under a contract or mobilization. – Ed.) the employee has his workplace and can terminate the employment contract,” Turchak said. Message appeared September 23 on the party website.
The changes will allow the period spent in military service to be counted as seniority. For the employee, he said, they will leave additional insurance and a non-state pension. The families of such servicemen will receive additional guarantees.
