Azerbaijan continues to employ war-affected citizens

Azerbaijan continues to take measures to employ war-affected
citizens. The Labour and Social Security Ministry has employed over
2,200 war-affected citizens as part of the Employment Marathon.

So far, the marathon employed a total of 2,275 members of
martyrs’ families and war veterans. Of those citizens, 1,888 are
war veterans, and the rest are members of the martyrs’
families.

At the same time, 642 employers have signed up for the
Employment Marathon, and there are 4,363 available positions.

The Employment Marathon aims to help people affected by the
Second Karabakh War find work.

In 2021, the State Employment Agency under the ministry provided
jobs for 77,640 unemployed and job seekers.

The ministry takes consistent steps to socially support the
martyrs’ families, war veterans, and war-affected civilians. In the
post-war period after November 2020, those social support measures
already covered 33,000 citizens of these categories.

Azerbaijan has allocated over AZN9 million ($5m) to compensate
damages to its citizens who suffered from Armenia’s aggression
during the 44-day war over Azerbaijan’s Karabakh region.
