The purpose of the article is to analyze the tools of state business support policy and develop proposals for improving labor legislation to protect employment under martial law. Research methods: dialectical, abstract-logical, induction and deduction, analysis and synthesis, analogy and comparisons, system, complex and content analysis. The instruments of the state policy of supporting enterprises in the conditions of martial law are analyzed, in particular regarding the simplification of the regulation of labor relations by suspending the validity of the employment contract. It has been proven that this creates conditions for the legalization of hidden unemployment and limits workers' access to assistance in the mandatory state social insurance system. The similarity of the impact of the factors of the COVID-19 pandemic and martial law on the labor market is shown. Based on the analysis of the international experience of saving jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic, ways of improving the labor legislation are proposed to compensate for the consequences of the suspension of the employment contract in the conditions of martial law.
