Vasil Kisil & Partners is the first multi-disciplinary law firm on the domestic market to create a dedicated labour and employment practice 16 years ago, and since then we developed the biggest Employment team in Ukraine.
Vasil Kisil & Partners has been ranked as Band 1 Employment Team for the recent decade.
Oksana Voynarovska, a head of the Employment Team, a deputy chair of the Employment Group of the Ukrainian Bar Association, has been involved as a legal expert on advising on the Draft Labour Code for the recent 10 years.
Vasil Kisil & Partners is a member of Ius Laboris, the world’s largest alliance of leading law firms providing specialised legal services in labour & employment with over 1,400 lawyers in over 49 countries.
The peculiarities of the Ukrainian labour law are mainly dictated by its obsoleteness. Being employee-oriented it hampers to certain extent labour market flexibility and makes it difficult to resolve the labour and employment-related matters on a parity basis. Consequently, it poses serious challenges for companies in various sensitive employment issues, including top-management dismissal.
Our lawyers are the go-to Ukrainian experts on such matters as preparation and negotiation of collective bargaining labour agreements, drafting employment contracts for top management, legal support in dismissal of personnel, as well as court disputes concerning labour issues. When you work with us you can expect the highest quality client service and specialist expertise in employment, labour, immigration, expatriation, pensions and employee benefits law.
