Fixed-Term Contracts

Fixed term contracts are permitted in specific instances. If work continues after the end of a fixed term agreement, it will be deemed indefinite. Similarly, a fixed term agreement can be deemed indefinite if renewed or extended.

Worker Classifications

There are no official subcategories of Workers in Ukraine.

Probationary Periods

Probationary periods are permitted for indefinite contracts and must be specified in the employment agreement. They cannot be more than three months long. Fixed-term contracts for 12 months or less are not permitted to have probationary periods. There are protected classes of employees that a probationary period cannot be established in the case of employment (i.e. those under the age of eighteen, pregnant women, those with disabilities, and graduates of vocational or higher education institutions). During the probationary period, three days' notice is required to terminate an employment agreement.


In Ukraine, Workers recognize 11 public holidays per year. Work performed on a public holiday should be compensated at 200% or time off in lieu.

After six months of service, most Workers are entitled to 24 calendar days of paid vacation each year. Some Workers (e.g. minors, those with disabilities, those in certain industries, etc.) are entitled to more. Accrued but unused vacation carries over year to year. Only some accrued vacation may be paid out rather than used. In any event, any accrued but unused vacation is payable at the end of the engagement.

Sick Leave
