The continuing war in Ukraine is having a devastating impact on many lives with repercussions felt around the world. Whether their workers or their families are directly affected, employers will want to help their people as best they can during this troubling time. The CIPD has collated the resources on this page to support employers and people professionals in this task. We will also endeavour to keep readers updated on the latest and most relevant information.

This is a fast-moving situation with frequent changes expected to policy and practice. In many cases, it will be important to seek independent advice as appropriate before taking action.
