On 20 November 2015 the changes to the Procedure for compensation to entities, organisations and institutions for mobilised employees became effective.

Following the amendments, the Procedure for compensation to entities, organisations and institutions for mobilised employees is applicable to those employees, who are conscripted for military services or work for military on the basis of a contract.

In addition, the Procedure for compensation to entities, organisations and institutions for mobilised employees applies to the citizens of Ukraine that:

  • starting from 18 March 2014 were called to military service during mobilization for the special period;
  • starting from 8 February 2015 were accepted for military service under the contract;
  • starting from 11 June 2015 were called to military service and also mobilized to military for the special period and are subject to demobilisation, but who continue their military service as military service under a contract.

The provision on compensation being paid for a term that does not exceed one year was cancelled.

Also, it is specified that the compensation of average salary from the state budget is provided to:

  • the employees called to military service until termination of the special period or the date of actual demobilisation;
  • the employees called to military service due to mobilisation until termination of the special period;
  • the employees called to military service during mobilization and subject to demobilisation, but who continue their military services as military service under a contract until termination of such contract.

Reports on actual failures to obtain compensation are certified by the district (city) military commissariat or military unit that performed conscription of employees for military service.
