[A] Doha-based subsidiary of ETA Ascon Group failed to pay end-of-service dues to more than 100 staff members following the termination of their contracts...the former employees have also been denied exit passages...It appears that at least one employee has secured diplomatic intervention from the Indian Embassy in Qatar in a bid to secure payment from ETA...ETA cited the “financial crunch” as a reason for non-payment of the former worker’s salary for the month of February. When asked when the outstanding final settlement would be released, the ETA representative stated: “No committed date can be provided currently, since the settlements are due for staff who had left eight months earlier – hence, this issue will be considered only after settling their earlier outstanding [payments].”
