Commission`s Opinion – EU acquis Chapter 19

Early stage of preparation (1)

Ukraine is at an early stage of preparation in the field of social policy and employment. It still needs to address significant shortcomings in its labour legislation. Approximation with the EU acquis on health and safety at work is limited. Undeclared work and wage arrears need to be addressed. There is also a need to improve social dialogue. Ukraine’s legislation is not aligned with EU gender equality legislation and needs further alignment with EU legislation on non-discrimination in employment. The labour inspections system needs to be improved.
