03.12.2020 413

The Chamber's meeting was chaired by the Senate Speaker Maulen Ashimbayev.

At the meeting, the Senate deputies considered in two readings and adopted the Law "On Amendments and Additions to Certain Legislative Acts of the Republic of Kazakhstan on Personnel Provision Services", initiated by the deputies of the Parliament.

The law will protect the labor rights of outsourcing employees, receive compensation in case of injury or death at work, and participate in the social insurance system. According to the senators, practice has shown that the lack of legal regulation of personnel provision services has led to gross violations of the rights of salaried employees. Employees who perform similar duties in the same positions as full-time employees, with the same level of qualification, are paid much lower for work than full-time employees of the company.

They are not protected by the industry agreements, as a rule do not receive additional payments for harmful working conditions, are not participants in collective agreements, and therefore do not have any benefits packages. They are not properly protected in case of injury or even death at work due to the fact that they are not insured in the social insurance system for the type of activity of the industry where they are sent to work.

"Employment issues are very important. Therefore, it is important to take specific steps to legally protect this area. One of them is the Law adopted today," the Senate Speaker said during the meeting.

Thus, a number of changes are made to the Labor Code of the Republic of Kazakhstan. Discrimination in remuneration against the outsourcing employees is prohibited. Additional paid annual leave, increased salaries, and reduced working hours are provided for outsourcing employees engaged in heavy works, works with harmful and dangerous working conditions. Amendments to the Civil and Entrepreneurial Codes and a number of Laws are also envisaged.

In addition, the senators considered the draft law "On Amendments and Additions to the Law of the Republic of Kazakhstan "On Administrative-Territorial System of the Republic of Kazakhstan", initiated by the deputies of the Parliament.

The draft law is aimed at improving legislation on administrative-territorial system. The draft Law also provides for granting representative and executive bodies the power to submit proposals to the Government on revision of the category of cities into settlements and villages.

"This document provides for improving the legislation on the administrative-territorial structure of Kazakhstan. We hope that in the future the document will contribute to the social and economic development of settlements and improve the quality of life of citizens," Maulen Ashimbayev said.

On the same day, the Senate deputies considered the issue of election and dismissal of judges of the Supreme Court of the Republic of Kazakhstan. As recommended by the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Saken Abdolla and Madeniyet Omarbekova were elected as new judges of the Supreme Court. The newly elected judges took the oath. On the basis of the recommendation of the Head of State and in accordance with the Constitution, the senators dismissed the judge of the Supreme Court, Gakharman Duysenbayev.

At the meeting, the senators voiced three deputy requests to the Prime Minister of the country. Issues related to the development of veterinary medicine are set out in the address of Akhylbek Kurishbayev. Senator Aygul Kapbarova spoke about the problematic issues of resettlement of citizens from the South to the North of the country.
