Opinion: Ordinance No.1 is based on social justice principles

MINSK, 26 January (BelTA) – Ordinance No.1 is based on the principles of social justice and helps exercise the right of every citizen to work, First Deputy Labor and Social Protection Minister Andrei Lobovich told a press conference on 26 January, BelTA informs.

“Ordinance No.1 stipulates employment assistance measures to be taken by the government and local authorities. It increases the role of local councils of deputies and executive bodies in addressing these issues. The document is meant to give as much employment assistance as possible and ensure the legal employment of the population. The ordinance is based on the principles of social justice and the participation of every citizen in the life of the society and the life of the country,” Andrei Lobovich underlined.

The local authorities will pursue an active employment policy and adopt an individual approach when providing employment assistance to those unable to compete on the labor market on equal terms.

The ordinance envisages a groundbreaking solution to employment issues: the government will annually draw up a list of territories with a complicated employment situation. This will help deal with relevant issues in individual districts and cities of Belarus. In such territories, oblast councils of deputies and the Minsk Council of Deputies will be able to allocate extra funds from the local budgets to undertake employment assistance measures.

“The employment assistance targets will be set for every quarter for government bodies at the national level and at the level of oblasts and districts. We will keep track of the performance of these tasks by the authorities to control the situation on the labor market in Belarus and the regions and promptly resolve it,” Andrei Lobovich added.
