Unemployment Insurance Scheme in Belarus in 2017

The scheme of unemployment insurance will be developed in Belarus in 2017, according to Marianna Shchetkina, the Minister of Labour and Social Protection, as BelTA reports. It is specified by sub-program “Promoting Employment” as part of State program on social protection and promotion of employment in the years 2016-2020. “Unemployment insurance – for God’s sake, the more safety net – the better. For 2017, it is planned to prepare some normative documents, which would identify how to do it and control it,” – Marianne Shchetkina said. The Minister drew attention that it is necessary to decide the main question – the sources from which disbursements will be made. “We can not impose it on the person or pay out of Social Security Fund. The guarantee fund should be currently in effect. That is why a working group is being created, which will include all concerned parties, to develop these documents”, – Marianna Shchetkina explained.
