Proposal To Simplify The Wage Debt Collection Procedure In Kazakhstan

Thursday, June 15, 2017 - 17:47

The Minister of Labor and Social Protection of the Population of Kazakhstan, Tamara Duisenova, has proposed to introduce the executive instructions on the facts of non-payment of salaries, which will speed up the procedure for collection of debts. This happened during the government meeting on June 13. She appealed to the Ministry of Justice with a request to consider the inclusion of the executive instructions for labor inspectors regarding the facts of non-payment of wages.


According to her, if these executive instructions are included in the list of enforcement documents, the process of collecting debts accumulated on the wages will be significantly accelerated. In the words of the minister, this idea is also supported by the Prosecutor General's Office of Kazakhstan.


At the same time, the situation is complicated by the fact that the majority of wage arrears in Kazakhstan account for bankrupt enterprises, or enterprises that are in the stage of rehabilitation after a bankruptcy. As follows from the minister's speech, as of today, the current wage arrears total about KZT88 million, and the overdue debt has reached KZT1.7 billion. 82 percent of the straggled debts (or about KZT1.4 billion) account for enterprises undergoing the rehabilitation procedure.


“Over 50 percent of the debts accounts for Almaty; in addition, a very significant debt is observed in Mangistau and West Kazakhstan provinces. This requires strengthening of the targeted work on the part of local executive bodies and the relevant structural subdivisions of the Ministry of Finance,” Tamara Duisenova stressed.
