Abstract

In the context of the globalization and aggravation of crime situation, the problem of human traffic is of the particular importance. Therefore, this article is aimed at the examining the organizational-legal issues of combating trafficking in human beings and forced labor. Based on the study of international instruments and national legislation of the Republic of Kazakhstan related to worker exploitation, the author revealed inconsistencies with international standards of human rights, in particular the lack of punishment under criminal law for forced labor. Particular attention is paid to the problem of trafficking in children, as well as changing staff control mechanisms of labor inspection and law enforcement. It proposed adjustments to the criminal legislation of the Republic of Kazakhstan by the adoption of criminal law, which prohibits the use of forced labor. In addition, there is identified and substantiated the need in a special law of the Republic of Kazakhstan on combating trafficking in human beings.
