Since the beginning of 2024, the state has paid UAH 45 million to employers as part of the compensation programme for the employment of 3,300 internally displaced persons. This was reported by First Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine - Minister of Economy of Ukraine Yuliia Svyrydenko.

“Since the beginning of this year, more than 2,000 employers have received compensation from the Government for the employment of 3,300 Ukrainians who were forced to move from dangerous regions of the country. More than a hundred of them are people with disabilities. In total, UAH 45 million have already been transferred to entrepreneurs. Thanks to the financial stimulation of employers under this programme, we help internally displaced persons to find work faster and adapt to a new place, to be able to provide for themselves and their families. This year, we have increased the duration of payment of compensation for employers to three months, and for the employment of IDPs from among persons with disabilities - to 6 months,” Yuliia Svyrydenko said.

The amount of compensation paid to the employer for the employment of a person who received the status of an IDP after 24 February 2022 is currently UAH 8 thousand. In order to receive funds, the employer must enter into an employment contract (in particular, as a second job), a gig contract with an internally displaced person and submit an application for receiving compensation through the Diia Portal or in paper form at the employment centre together with a package of necessary documents.

As a reminder, the Government introduced a programme to encourage entrepreneurs to hire internally displaced persons in April 2022. The purpose of the programme is to speed up the adaptation of people who were forced to move to safer regions and to increase the level of employment among the population. For each employed IDP, the state pays the employer compensation in the amount of the minimum wage (as of 1 April 2024 – UAH 8,000) for 3 months, for employing IDPs with disabilities - for 6 months.
