Labour & Compliance

Sayenko Kharenko is the only law firm in Ukraine to have labour and compliance practice, which emerged from the firms’ labour and employment practice and its niche privacy/data protection and anti-corruption/anti-bribery practice groups.


This allows us to handle simultaneously multiple projects, including large compliance projects requiring combined legal advice from the experts of our labour/employment, privacy/data protection and anti-corruption/anti-bribery practice groups.

We specialize in all areas of labour/employmentprivacy/data protection and anti-corruption/anti-bribery law, providing a wide range of legal services, including:

  • Labour/employment law, privacy/personal data protection and anti-corruption/anti-bribery compliance audits and due diligence of targets
  • Advising on taking disciplinary actions against whistle-blowers
  • Localizing corporate group global policies/procedures, in particular those developed under the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the UK Bribery Act 2010 (UKBA), to ensure their enforceability under Ukrainian laws
  • Developing sophisticated anti-corruption/anti-bribery and data protection compliance programs, and their implementation step plans adjusted to the Ukrainian regulatory, employment and business environment

Our team strongly believes that amicable settlement of labour disputes, especially those related to compliance violations, is often in the client’s best interest. We are recognised for the remarkable track record of success in resolving complicated employment disputes amicably and on the clients’ terms.
