Abstract

The article examines the current issues of harmonization of labor legislation in the context of eurointegration. It is noted that the
eurointegration processes, the need to increase the protection of rights, the present challenges and the rapidity of changes in public life
call for further reforming national labor legislation. The development of an effective legal model for the realization of the right to work
and the adaptation of national labor legislation to the legislation of the European Union requires the joint efforts of, first of all, experts
in labor law and social security law and the application of theoretically substantiated, reasoned approaches towards it. As for Ukraine,
the realization of the right to work in the context of Ukraine’s eurointegration should be perceived as an instrument for and the process
of fulfilling our state’s strategic goals and objectives of national, national economical, socio-political and cultural development, which
has become indispensable today.
It is emphasized that harmonization, or convergence is understood as introducing general principles of legal regulation in parti -
cular areas of public life while preserving the states more or less space for their own legal regulation. Harmonization as a more flexible
method of legal integration is based on the convergence of domestic law with a legislative model, which allows for taking national cha -
racteristics into account. At the same time, harmonization does not intend to uniform labor legislation of the EU countries, on the contrary,
it is based on the convergence of the legislation of these countries. It is concluded that the formation of the European area in the
economic sphere is impossible without the formation of a single legal area in the field of labor. Harmonization of labor legislation of
the EU and candidate countries can create a solid legal basis for deepening the partnership and turning it into a stable and effective
cooperation based on a common labor market between the members of this union.
