QATAR NEW LABOR LAW TO TAKE EFFECT ON DECEMBER
Qatar has completed the preparation for the regulations of the new labor law regulating the entry and exit of expatriates and it will come into effect on December this year. The new legislation will replace the sponsorship system and make the employment and stay of expatiates here entirely contract-based. Job contract will need to be signed by a foreign worker before he lands here once the new law is in effect from later this year. All expatriate workers will have to sign new contracts with their employers in compliance with the provisions of the new law (No 21 of 2015).
