Private employment agencies to be involved in E-labor exchange
B. Nurymbetov noted that the draft law was developed in order to fulfill the instructions of the Head of State from September 9, 2016 to improve the instruments of the employment state support.
“Taking into account that a new Program for Development of Productive Employment and Mass Entrepreneurship envisages the participation of 4 Ministries (Labor and Social Protection of Population, Education and Science, National Economy, Agriculture) as operators in its implementation, the bill redistributes their functions in the sphere of employment promotion”, – the Vice-Minister reported.
According to the Vice-Minister, the participation of private employment agencies in the implementation of active measures to promote employment of the population, as envisaged by the program is one of the innovations. In this connection, the draft law proposes to define the term “outsourcing of services in the field of employment of the population”.
In order to simplify procedures related to the treatment of unemployed citizens in employment centers, the draft law provides the possibility of confirming job search not only through personal visits to theemployment Center, but also through information and communication technologies (telephone, e-mail, etc.). Besides that, unemployed and employers will have the opportunity to interact with employment centers and private employment agencies through the electronic labor exchange.
“Another positive innovation is the expansion of the opportunity for students and senior students to participate in public works, not only during the summer holidays, but also during their free time. This is permitted by the Labor Code of the Republic of Kazakhstan and will allow young people to receive additional income”, – the Vice-Minister informed.
The bill also provides redistribution of functions of the state bodies, in particular, the functions of forming of the state policy in the field of population migration were transferred from the Ministry of National Economy to the MLSPP, and the functions of interdepartmental coordination and implementation of the state policy in the sphere of migration from the MLSPP to the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
At the development stage of the bill on specific employment issues, the experience of Australia, Sweden, Japan and Hungary had been studied and taken into account.
The bill provides amendments and additions to 5 codes and 6 laws. In the event of its adoption, no negative legal and socio-economic consequences are expected. The implementation of the bill doesn’t require additional financial costs from the state budget.
