As a reminder, amendments to the Labor Code of the Republic of Kazakhstan (hereinafter, the "Labor Code") came into effect on May 16, 2020 to lay the legal foundation for introducing the Unified Employment Agreements Accounting System (hereinafter, the "UEAAS") in Kazakhstan. However, employer's obligation to enter information into the UEAAS "did not work" until the authorized agency has determined the procedure for entering information into the system.
The Rules for the Provision and Obtainment of Data on Employment Agreements in the UEAAS were approved by Order No. 353 of the Minister of Labor and Social Protection of Population of the Republic of Kazakhstan of September 3, 2020 and entered into effect on September 18, 2020 (hereinafter, the "UEAAS Working Rules").
Therefore, starting September 18, 2020 all employers are obligated to enter information on employment agreements into the UEAAS.
This article sheds light on the practicalities of entering information into the UEAAS, which may be relevant for employers.
