Description According to the Constitution, any kind of discrimination is illegal, even though neither sexuality nor gender identity is included explicitly. The official list of mental illnesses of the Republic of Kazakhstan does not include either sexuality or gender identity. And therefore, since a person does not have any reason to be considered incompetent, they have the right to be employed (Article 24 of the Constitution) The Health Code of Kazakhstan does not recognize any sexual orientation to be a mental disorder either, while the Labor Code bans any discrimination (Article 5) when it comes to employment, retirement, wage distribution, etc. Transgender people are guaranteed the same rights under the Health Code. While a person's gender is included explicitly, sexuality isn't, however it falls under the "other circumstances" category, as a person is competent to be employed
