Simutina Yana. Decodification VS recodification of the labor legislation of Ukraine
Introduction. The article is devoted to the study of urgent problems arising in the process of reforming labor legislation in Ukraine with a view to its liberalization. In connection with the introduction of the draft Labor Law, register for consideration by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, No. 2708 dated 12/28/2019, the author focuses the attention on the question regarding the form of the main legislative act in the field of labor in Ukraine.
The aim of the article is to find out the differences between the forms of systematization of legislation, in particular, codification, recodification and decoding, and to justify taking into account the peculiarities of the national legal system, which of these types is the most appropriate in the process of reforming the labor legislation in Ukraine.
Results. The codification of legislation is primary in relation to other legal phenomena, as it underlies decodification and recodification. The codification is an independent and complete form of systematization of legislation, which can be replaced by decodification or recodification only in certain cases. The latter are completely opposite to each other and are directly dependent on codification, since the absence of a codified act makes them impossible. Recodification is a form of refinement of a codified act, a kind of tool for eliminating gaps in the legal regulation of a particular sphere of public relations.
The existence of a codified act in the sphere of work for Ukraine is a legal tradition.
The reform of labor law must be done with due regard to the fact that labor law is, among other things, a special tool for the implementation of social policy of the state and an independent branch of law, which is fundamentally different from other branches (civil, administrative) in its subject, method, the functions and principles of legal regulation.
The comprehensive and systematic reform of the entire branch of labor law should be carried out through its recodification, that is, the adoption of a new modern Labor Code of Ukraine or Labor Code, which will concentrate most direct labor rules of labor, while maintaining the most fundamental provisions of current legislative and regulatory acts, which justified themselves terms.
Conclusions. Modernizing the labor legislation of Ukraine in the form of its recodification is the most optimal option for further independent development of the labor law branch in the legal system of Ukraine.
Key words: codification, recodification, decodification, labor legislation.
