Increase of Sanctions for Violations Related to Employment of Foreign Nationals

On 29 November 2012 the President signed the Law "On Unified Demographic State Register and Ukrainian Citizenship Identity" (the "Law").

Besides formation of Unified State Demographic Register and introduction of digital biometric data into identity documents for Ukrainian citizens, the Law also amends the Law "On Employment" increasing employers liability for employment of foreigners without work permits. The fine will be raised to the level of one hundred minimum wages (which is currently UAH 111,800).

The Law will become effective upon its publication.
