The lecturer of the seminar was Hanseit Bolen, a member of the Pool of Lecturers of the Federation of Trade Unions of the Republic of Kazakhstan. He provided detailed information on the resolution of labor disputes, and also analyzed in detail the work of the conciliation commission.
“Collective labor disputes are mainly related to the violation of the terms of the collective labor agreement with the employer or to disagreements that have arisen between the labor collective and the employer on various aspects of their relationship. The dispute can be settled at the pre-trial stages using mediation, by contacting the conciliation commission and labor arbitration. In addition, the Republic of Kazakhstan has the necessary legal basis for the implementation of such a tool for resolving collective labor disputes as a strike. Conciliation commissions exercise their legal capacity at those stages when a collective labor dispute has already become a reality, and it is necessary to carry out activities for its settlement and resolution,” the speaker explained.
In conclusion, the marathon participants noted that at the meeting they managed to expand their knowledge in the field of collective labor disputes, mechanisms and procedures for their resolution, as well as analyze the legal technology for resolving collective labor disputes and improve their skills in working with legislative acts of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
