The chairman of the public organization “Center for the Defense of Kiev”, the head of the Kiev “Fatherland” Vitaly Nestor called on the Cabinet to provide for the possibility of remote registration of unemployed.
The government should immediately respond to the problem of stopping payments to the unemployed and provide for the possibility of their remote accounting. This was stated on his Facebook page by the chairman of the Kiev “Fatherland”, the head of the public organization “Center for the Defense of Kiev” Vitaly Nestor.
He reported on massive complaints by Kiev residents about stopping unemployment payments related to the inability to visit employment centers due to quarantine.
“People complain that because of quarantine they are not able to plan to visit employment centers as required by current legislation. This becomes a reason for non-payment of payments,” said Nestor.
He drew attention to the inability to register for unemployment to people who lose their jobs during the quarantine period.
“They can’t quickly become registered and actually remain without any financial support,” the head of the Batkivshchyna metropolitan said.
According to Vitaliy Nestor, the government should immediately solve this problem and provide for the possibility of calculating payments and registering for unemployment without physical visits to employment centers.
“It is urgent to make changes to the registration, re-registration of the unemployed and keeping records of job seekers, approved by Cabinet Resolution No. 792 of September 19, 2018. You can’t hesitate – people who lost their jobs during this difficult time cannot afford to wait,” He added.
