The Ministry of Economy proposes to determine the procedure for paying fines to the state budget for advertising discriminatory job advertisements, according to a draft government decree.
The document was made public on Tuesday on the ministry’s website.
According to it, the Ministry proposes to oblige the advertiser to pay a fine within 15 days after receiving the relevant document from the State Labor Service or to challenge such a fine in the central executive body or in court.
In case of non-payment, the fine is proposed to be collected in court, as indicated in the draft resolution.
According to the law on advertising, it is prohibited to indicate the desired age of candidates, to offer jobs only to men or women, with the exception of specific jobs, and to establish other discriminatory criteria in advertising for a vacancy. For violation, the law establishes a fine of ten minimum wages (currently UAH 65,000).
