LEASED LABOR [1] IN KAZAKHSTAN: HAS THE NEW LABOR CODE LEGALIZED IT?

"Legislative activity is like old age – it moves slowly and looks suspiciously at everything." - [A. F. Koni]

As business globalizes, different forms of the leased or so-called atypical labor are going increasingly popular, which cannot be neglected.  Whilst not disapproving of this phenomenon in principle, Kazakhstan's labor law, unfortunately, does not always flexibly respond to messages from economy.  This is normal athough, as any law is essentially conservative.

There exist several different options of leased labor: outstaffing, outsourcing, etc.  The most popular type of leased labor is the so-called secondment – temporary transfer of employees by an employer to another employer.

[1] In Russian "zayomnyi trud" also translated as "outsourced employment" or "agency employment."
