See all tags Allegations

 In response to the late settlement of salaries, a small number of expatriate workers conducted a peaceful protest in the Msheireb area on 22nd May.

Following an immediate investigation in cooperation with relevant entities, the Ministry of Administrative Development, Labour and Social Affairs (ADLSA) has taken steps to ensure that all salaries will be promptly paid in the coming days and legal action has been taken against the companies involved, for violating the Wage Protection System (WPS)...

Any company found violating these obligations will be penalised in line with Qatar's Labour Laws.
