On January 12, 2022, at a regular meeting, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine decided to reform the regional structure of the State Labor Service by establishing interregional departments, whose jurisdiction will extend to several oblasts.
Reducing the number of territorial offices and ensuring the possibility of exercising the powers of inspectors on an interregional basis will optimize the number of administrative staff and free up additional resources to increase the efficiency of the body as a whole.
“Today’s decision of the Government will increase the efficiency of the service and its transparency. In particular, more resources will be focused on the implementation of the direct functions of the State Labor Service with the concentration of inspection staff depending on operational tasks. For example, if there is a shortage of inspectors in one region, we can promptly send specialists from another region. Thus, it is possible to increase both the inspection staff and the payroll. We already have a similar experience: Kyiv and Kyiv regions, as well as Luhansk and Donetsk regions are united in one territorial administration, ”said Deputy Minister of Economy of Ukraine Ihor Dyadyura.
The document provides for the liquidation of regional territorial offices and the formation of new interregional territorial bodies of the State Labor:
1.Western Interregional Department of the State Labor Service (Volyn, Rivne, Lviv, Zakarpattia regions);
2.South-Western Interregional Department of the State Labor Service (Ternopil, Ivano-Frankivsk, Chernivtsi regions);
3.Central-Western Interregional Department of the State Labor Service (Zhytomyr, Khmelnytsky, Vinnytsia regions);
4.Central Interregional Department of the State Labor Service (Chernihiv, Kyiv, Cherkasy regions, Kyiv);
5.North-Eastern Interregional Department of the State Labor Service (Sumy, Poltava, Kharkiv regions);
6.South-Eastern Interregional Department of the State Labor Service (Kirovohrad, Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhia regions);
7.Southern interregional department of the State Labor Service (Odessa, Mykolaiv, Kherson regions).
