Workers in Qatar can now change employer by submitting a new form to MADSLA online. Firstly, the employee must communicate with the employer in advance and agree upon the last working day before just filing the form online and this has to be followed as per the contract with the duration of the notice period.

MADSLA has replaced the old e-form with a new one, wherein they have eliminated the details of the old employer in the new form. With this, the worker will not require the confirmation of the old employer to change to their new employer.

This is a specialized e-service to notify the old employer of changing the workplace by mutual consent and changing the workplace of the fixed-term or indefinite contracts and unjustified firing.

NOTE: The date of submission of the new form to change employer will be the start date of your notice period with your present employer.

  • Please note that these steps are only for workers who have finished their contract or if the old employer is committing any violation against the employee. The notification period is 30 days if the worker is in the current job for two years or less and the notification period is 60 days if the worker is in the current job for more than two years.
  • For example, if your contract is ending on December 31, and you're in the company for less than 2 years, you have to give your current employer a 30 days notice period, i.e. on 30 November.
  • After the submission, the labour office will look into your request based on your reasons and will either approve or disapprove your application.
