The problem of employment of women in recent years in Ukraine became especially important: state does not provide an adequate number of places for young professionals who graduated; private employers refuse to employ women and persons without work experience and persons over 40 years. The most pressing issue, especially in Lviv City and Lviv region, is ignoration by employers of women candidates in the provision of work. Employer Motivation: a future pregnancy, pay social payments associated with children, a number of benefits in performance, gender stereotypes, and so on.
