Overseas Pakistanis in Qatar to benefit from the new Labour Laws
According to details, Qatar has become the first Gulf state to have enacted a non-discriminatory minimum monthly wage of 1,000 Qatari Riyals (QAR).
The new minimum monthly wage rule will be applicable to all laborers including domestic workers regardless of their nationalities.
The employers will be required to pay their workers an additional QAR 300 and QAR 500 for the food and accommodation respectively.
Moreover, Qatar has also abolished the requirement for migrant workers that required them to seek the permission of their employers before switching jobs.
Earlier this year, Qatar had removed the exit permit requirement for migrant workers as well.
Both these laws have put an end to the “Kafala Sponsorship System.
