Abstract

The issue of psychological violence in the workplace or any other place where the employee is obliged to be is currently becoming more acute and relevant, particularly with respect to numerous women reporting workplace harassment. The greatest difficulty for those suffering various forms of harassment is to prove the fact of psychological or physical violence, and the need to expose these private facts of life to the public eye. In both Russia and Kazakhstan, the society usually condemns victims of violence, and the legislation ignores them restricting itself to the existence of criminal law norms, which, however, are virtually not applied. The paper reveals not only the problems of legal regulation in the field of labor legislation, which does not protect employees against sexual harassment and other forms of violence at work. It shows practical solutions for Russia and Kazakhstan to establish transparent and effective standards for protection of employees, since these countries are bound by international conventions on discrimination and violence in the workplace.
