Al Jazeera reported the organisers of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar have banned a company named Qatar Meta Coats (QMC) from working on World Cup projects until further notice.
About 100 employees of a Qatari subcontractor, Qatar Meta Coats (QMC), who were contracted for facade work on the Al Bayt Stadium, went up to seven months without pay and continue to be owed some salaries, Amnesty said on Friday.
QMC has also not renewed residency permits for most of its workers, necessary for foreigners working in Qatar, the rights group added.
According to Al Jazeera's news, Qatar's Government Communication Office said QMC had been financially sanctioned and its operations suspended until all outstanding salaries were paid.
QMC has been sold and actions by the new owners to rectify "the neglect of the previous owner", including renewing residency permits and health insurance, are being overseen by the labour ministry.
