Abstract

Fundamental labor rights are not exclusively about workers or employees; they also provide protection to a number of more specific vulnerable groups, such as children, ethnic minorities, women, migrant workers, and disabled people. This function of labor law is particularly visible in relation to norms on nondiscrimination and equal treatment. Moreover, a vast number of these substantive norms are enshrined in the core international human rights treaties and their implementation is monitored by United Nations (un) treaty-based bodies. Two such cases feature in the present issue of the International Labor Rights Case Law, one by the un Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (cedaw Committee) and other by the un Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (crpd Committee).The first case, Anna Belousova v Kazakhstan, concerns Communication No. 45/2012 of 25 August 2015 by the cedaw Committee.

When her new employer proposed that she engage in a sexual relationship with him and tried to extort money from her, she refused; subsequently, her employment contract was not extended. The Committee found that the State had not taken all appropriate measures to ensure effective protection of Belousova’s rights,
