PDF File Size: 4.93 MB | Download   
Every day many Nepalis – like you – enter Qatar for work.Most of the newly arrived expatriates join the workforce without experiencing any major problem but some encounter tough times.There are ways to avoid these sorts of difficult situations.And if you are being abused, there are people who can help you.Regardless of your legal status,you are entitled to the respect and protection of your human rights and to live free from harassment and exploitation.Qatar is a small country in the Persian Gulf.It is an Islamic State,with the majority of its population Muslim. Qatar also has a large population of foreign workers.The official language is Arabic. Its rich economy is highly dependent upon petroleum and natural gas.All migrant workers in Qatar,including you, are governed by the sponsorship, or kafala, system. Within this system, you are under the complete responsibility of your employer (also known as the sponsor, or kafeel), both financially and legally. Your employer is responsible for obtaining a residence permit and providing you with an identity (ID) card. Thus, your legal status to live and work in the country fully depends on your employer, and you cannot leave or enter the country without the employer’s permission. The employer can be either a local citizen or a company.If you work in a private company or establishment, you are thus entitled to receive the rights guaranteed by the Labor Law. Instead, you are under the complete responsibility of your employer through the kafala system.Even though the Government has announced plans to make changes to the kafala system, the decision has yet to be implemented. You need to keep yourself updated.
