    The research provides a basis for a comprehensive approach to solving the problems of legal regulation of the labor market and employment, and also expands the boundaries of research in the law that allows combining the advantages of modern theoretical science and legal practice. The conclusions and final recommendations can be used for the following purposes: improving the sources of Kazakhstani labor law; introducing the standards of wage labor in the OECD states into the system of Kazakhstan law; identifying the specifics of transformation of the OECD standards into the domestic law. The monograph makes it possible to meet the modern demand of the state and society for a high-quality scientific study of the process of legal support in the Kazakhstani new social policy, corresponding to the program documents of the country's development. Moreover, the study has been conducted in a proactive mode and determines certain prospects for the development of the Kazakhstani labor market, considering the study of the OECD states' positive experience. This research has been funded by the Science Committee of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Kazakhstan (Grant No.АР05131637).
