Under conditions of emergencies, quarantine, martial law, citizens feel an increased need for effective work of civil servants, so the legal framework for civil servants should only contribute to the functioning of the state apparatus to provide basic services to the Ukrainian people. The whole range of public services must be provided to the citizens of Ukraine in a timely and prompt manner, despite the martial law. The scientific article examines current legal issues of labour regulation of civil servants under martial law. Increased attention is paid to the principle of patriotism as fundamental in the current work of civil servants. It is proposed to amend part 1 item 2 of Section II of the General Rules of Ethical Conduct of Civil Servants and Local Government Officials and state it in the following wording: «By their conduct, civil servants and local government officials should strengthen the authority of the civil service and service in local self-government bodies, affirm patriotic sentiments in the course of civil service, as well as the positive reputation of state bodies and local self-government bodies». It is recommended to include in the training programs of civil servants the issue of strict observance of the principle of patriotism among civil servants. With the start of the war, some civil servants left the borders of Ukraine, and many civil servants moved to other relatively safe regions of Ukraine. In many government agencies, the need to replenish human resources has increased. Under such realities, the legislation governing civil service has been innovated. Legislative innovations in the field of civil service are considered, among which special attention is paid to the lack of specialized selection for civil service positions, the potential risks of such innovations and ways to overcome them are outlined. In particular, we consider it necessary to conduct an interview with applicants for a vacant civil service position in several stages; not to refuse special inspections; call previous employers to confirm the facts covered in the characteristics-recommendations from previous jobs. It is proposed to start testing candidates for vacant civil service positions, constructing the test questions in such a way as to «feel» the pro-Ukrainian position of a potential civil servant. It is recommended to give preference in access to the civil service to former employees who resigned by agreement of the parties and have a sincere desire to serve with dignity for the benefit of our state in difficult times for the country.
