We are employees of Meinhard Bim Studio LLC (MBS) in Qatar who have not been paid regularly, despite many attempts to file complaints. While our contract is from Meinhardt Singapore’s Qatar office, we worked for MBS. Until January of this year, our visas were all sponsored by third-party companies as MBS did not have visas. Our visa sponsors (each of us have different visa sponsors) have our ATM cards and deposit the minimum salary monthly and withdraw it the next day.
We usually received our salary every 45 days to two months.
We have worked on various projects including the Hamad International Airport extension projects, Al Rayyan Stadium, Lusail Stadium Precinct and Qetaifan Water Park project.
