Priority in employment is given to Qatari citizens and any hiring of non-Qataris or workers from abroad requires the permission of the government. Foreigners may work in Qatar under different employers, that is, they can change employers after completing their employment contract or the employer terminates the contract (without any legal sanctions on the expatriate). Employment laws in Qatar were amended in 2020, imposing new requirements on employers and providing enhanced rights to workers.

Employment Law

While previously employers could terminate the employment of a worker, serving a probationary period, with three days’ notice, the minimum notice period is now one month. Additionally, while employers were able to include ‘non-compete’ clauses in employment contracts before (that could last up to two years), the permissible length has now been reduced to a year.

Employment Agreement
The Civil Service and Government Development Bureau reviews and authenticates employment contracts to ensure they comply with Qatar’s labor law. This is required for work contracts, work service certificates, personal sponsorship and profession amendments.

Working condition
The maximum number of working hours allowed without overtime pay is 48 hours per week. Working hours are reduced to 36 per week during Ramadan. Workers are entitled to at least one day of rest per week and no employee should work two or more Fridays in a row (Friday is a common day of rest for all workers).

The law identifies all kinds of leave including annual, casual, sick, emergency, study and unpaid leave. If an employee is not able to take their full annual leave, they must take at least half of it and transfer the other half to the annual leave balance in the next year. The General Retirement & Social Insurance Authority (GRSIA) provides a service to individuals, businesses and government entities to enable them to get an estimated calculation of unpaid leave.

Employment termination
The service of an employee may be ended for a number of reasons including reaching the age of 60, end of contract, resignation, medical incapacity, disciplinary dismissal, loss of Qatari citizenship and death. An employee is entitled to resign provided the resignation is submitted in writing (and does not contain any condition or restriction).

Decree-Law No. 19 of 2020 has introduced changes to the Qatar Labor Law and Law No.21 of 2015 regulating the entry and exit of expatriates and their residence. It now makes it easier for employees to move to new employers. Under the previous regime, non-Qatari citizens required a No Objection Certificate (NOC) in order to transfer to a new employer. This was central to the ‘Kafala’ sponsorship system. However, this is no longer required. Non-Qatari citizens must only ensure compliance with the requirements around notice periods. An exit permit is also no longer required when moving to a new job in another country.

Residency permits
Residence permit applications are managed by the Ministry of Interior and may take up to six weeks. Reactivation of a residence permit on visa may be done online and this is available for both individuals as well as establishments. Renewal of the residence permit online may be done for between 1 to 3 years.
