During the International Labour Conference, Qatar highlights changes.

The reform of labor regulations is described as “extraordinary” by the Secretary General of the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC).

According to an ILO spokesperson, labor reforms will have a favourable image following the FIFA World Cup.

During a seminar held on the sidelines of the International Labour Conference in Geneva, Qatar was recognized for its accomplishments in workers’ welfare and labor rights in the run-up to hosting the FIFA World Cup in 2022. A new minimum wage regulation has already resulted in increased earnings for 280,000 workers ahead of the FIFA World Cup, while legislation on working in hot temperatures has been introduced. New restrictions on overtime compensation, termination, and conditions of employment for domestic workers, as well as the establishment of 14 new Qatar Visa Centres in numerous origin countries and joint committees to enhance worker engagement in firms, are all part of the labor reforms.

H.E. Dr. Ali bin Samikh Al Marri, Qatar’s Minister of Labour, who was elected Vice-President of the International Labour Conference in May, hosted the event, which was organized to highlight the reforms. The International Labour Organization (ILO), the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), and the International Organisation of Employers (IOE) all complimented Qatar for its efforts to modernize its labor laws. Workers in Qatar can finally receive justice, according to ITUC General Secretary Sharan Burrow, who was once a harsh opponent of the labor system in Qatar. “The Qatari labor law change has been amazing,” says the author “she stated “Labor laws are not just an agreement; they are enacted into law, and there is a system of enforcement in the form of labor courts.”

“The Kafala system of contemporary slavery is dead; there are labor laws, progress, and even domestic servants in our country are not discriminated against.” The ILO’s Deputy Director-General for Field Operations and Partnerships, Moussa Oumarou, noted that modernizing labor laws had improved working conditions in Qatar. He stated, “We want success in labor reforms to be a positive image for Qatar beyond the World Cup.” The IOE’s Secretary-General, Roberto Suárez Santos, added: “Qatar has opened up new avenues for communication with international organizations and partners, which has aided in the establishment of mutual confidence.
