The Government meeting chaired by Prime Minister Bakytzhan Sagintayev has considered a bill aimed at modernizing the employment market. The document was presented by Minister of Labor and Social Protection of Population Tamara Duissenova.

According to the speaker, the bill was developed in accordance with the instructions of the Head of State. The developers expect the creation of an electronic employment market, which will become a single electronic platform, combining information from public and private employment centers, resumes and information on vacancies provided by citizens and employers independently. The new electronic platform will provide free information services to citizens and employers, private employment agencies and Internet sites.

The bill proposes to involve private employment agencies in providing services to promote employment for the unemployed and for self-employed citizens. To this end, a list was defined of functions performed by the state and those outsourced. Thus, it is planned to outsource the functions of vocational guidance for the unemployed and self-employed citizens, the organization of their training and employment.

Secondly, private employment agencies will be given the opportunity to provide certain types of services or packet services, including, for example, training and employment, or vocational guidance, training and employment.

Thirdly, it provides for the updating of standards and the introduction of economically viable services that are attractive for the private sector.

The fourth change envisages a gradual transformation of state employment centers. Thus, employment centers will be transformed from state agencies into enterprises operating on the basis of the right of economic management. The organizational and legal form will be determined by local executive bodies independently.

According to the developers, the proposed changes will allow expanding labor market institutions that provide services to promote employment, ensuring their accessibility to citizens and improving quality through competition.

The bill provides for the introduction of amendments and additions to 4 Codes and 5 Laws.
