The Labor Freedom index for Kazakhstan from the Heritage Foundation reflects the various aspects of the legal and regulatory framework of the labor market in Kazakhstan, including the minimum wage; laws inhibiting layoffs; severance requirements; and the regulatory burdens on hiring.
Definition: The Labor freedom index is composed of six quantitative factors: ratio of minimum wage to the average value added per worker, hindrance to hiring additional workers, rigidity of hours, difficulty of firing redundant employees, legally mandated notice period, and mandatory severance pay. The index is based on data collected in connection with the World Bank’s Doing Business study.
