Qatar: Government failure to ensure unpaid wages

Qatari authorities have failed to give a review to hundreds of migrant workers who are awaiting months of unpaid wages at two companies in the country, despite repeatedly being reported to the authorities, Human Rights Watch (HRW) said on Tuesday.

The Workers’ Support and Insurance Fund, which the public authority set up in 2018 explicitly to guarantee that laborers are paid their wages when organizations neglect to pay, has not been used to profit these migrant laborers in the two organizations.

“It is disheartening that hundreds of workers are struggling to obtain their unpaid wages even though the Qatari government has been made aware of these abuses over and over again,” said Maham Javaid, Middle East fellow at Human Rights Watch. “The Qatari government’s failure to ensure that workers are paid underlines the disappointing gap between Qatar’s promises of reform and reality.”

On September 28, 2020, HRW informed the government earlier this year that two companies in the country were systematically underpaying employees.
This wage abuse continues even though workers started submitting complaints to various government authorities starting in June. The workers have yet to hear back from the government.

In response to allegations from Human Rights Watch, the Government Communications Office said that “the company has been placed on the Labor Ministry’s list of banned companies, legal proceedings against the company have been launched, and strict penalties have been imposed on the company.”
However, the laborers, a significant number of whom report living and working in desperate conditions, have still not got the wages they are owed.

Happy Qatar National Day

𝐇𝐚𝐩𝐩𝐲 𝐐𝐚𝐭𝐚𝐫 𝐍𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐃𝐚𝐲

Manforce Group wishes you a Happy Qatar National day to everyone out there.
Qatar National Day is one of the best occasions here in Qatar and one that everyone – locals and expats- love celebrating. It’s a time of joy and camaraderie with everyone coming together to pay homage to this beautiful country.

This day is a national commemoration of Qatar’s unification in 1878. It is celebrated annually on 18 December. The holiday was established by a 21 June 2007 decree of the then Crown Prince and Heir Apparent Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani. It is also known as Founder’s Day.

Every year the Qatar National Day Organising Committee reveals a unique slogan for Qatar National Day celebrations. The slogan is usually a quote from a poem by the founder of Qatar – 𝐒𝐡𝐞𝐢𝐤𝐡 𝐉𝐚𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐦 𝐁𝐢𝐧 𝐌𝐨𝐡𝐚𝐦𝐦𝐞𝐝 𝐁𝐢𝐧 𝐓𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐢. The slogan explains the established faith foundations on which the country was founded and expresses the strength of the people and this land. The Qatar National Day 2020 slogan translates to:

“𝑾𝒆 𝒑𝒓𝒂𝒊𝒔𝒆 𝒚𝒐𝒖, 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝑳𝒐𝒓𝒅 𝒐𝒇 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝑻𝒉𝒓𝒐𝒏𝒆,
𝑾𝒆 𝒂𝒄𝒄𝒆𝒑𝒕 𝒚𝒐𝒖𝒓 𝒋𝒖𝒅𝒈𝒎𝒆𝒏𝒕 𝒊𝒏 𝒂𝒍𝒍 𝒂𝒄𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏𝒔.”
