The Ministry of Interior tweeted yesterday that the Qatar Visa Centers (QVCs) in six nations have now continued tasks and will encourage the systems needed for work visas under one rooftop, guaranteeing the privileges of the worker and the business. These nations include: Pakistan, India, the Philippines, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.
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.
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:
New work rules in the energy-rich country of Qatar “effectively dismantles” the nation’s for quite some time condemned the “kafala” business framework, a UN labor body said on Sunday.
The International Labor Organization (ILO) said starting at now, following the reception on 30 August 2020 of Law No. 18 of 2020, traveler laborers would now be able to change occupations before the finish of their agreement without first acquiring a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from their employer. This new law, combined with the evacuation of exit permit requirements prior in the year, successfully dismantles the “kafala” sponsorship framework and imprints the start of another time for the Qatari labor market.
Qatar also adopted new legislation today which establish a minimum wage of 1,000 Qatari riyals (QAR) which will enter into force six months after the law’s publication in the Official Gazette as stated by ILO. This applies to workers of every nationality working in any sector including Domestic workers. The lowest pay permitted by law rule expects businesses to pay recompenses for lodging and food too on the off chance that they don’t give those to their laborers.
This comes as Qatar will have the 2022 FIFA World Cup in the Arabian Peninsula country. Having the triumphant offered for the soccer competition acquired restored consideration regarding workers’ privileges Qatar. These laws bolster the progress towards a more talented and beneficial workforce, which is a key objective in Qatar’s National Vision 2030.
We are an established group in Qatar that specialize in the supply of contract manpower. As, world cup 2022 is going to be held on Qatar, Man Force Group is taking all the responsibilities with skilled and quality manpower for the stadium. Not only stadium but also in every aspect where manpower are required. A group meeting with all the manpower is conducted where they’re assisted with their respective work in order to work smoothly. As group work is the key to success they’re made to work together in unit maintain discipline and respecting each others work. Workers are assigned with their particular work and also motivated to work efficiently. A leader plays a vital role in any of the word Manforce Group is giving 100% leadership to the workers so that they get motivation and get self esteem among them.
Workers Welfare Representative is the program organized by Man force Group to choose one of the best candidates to represent union of workers and to lead the workers. This is the program organized by very few groups and one of them is Man force. This program has many benefits not only to the organization but also for the individual worker. This motivates all the works and makes them actively take part in every work held in the organization. Another good aspect is we not just included in the program, we also appreciated their work and uplifted their self esteem by providing certificates of appreciation to them. Each and every workers is equally important to the organization so we believe that having these kinds of program and seminars will actually help in the organization and even the ratio of labor turnover also decreases. These kind of seminars should be conducted frequently.
