Minister of Labor Dr. Ali bin Samikh Al Marri met with Chairman of Qatar Chamber Sheikh Khalifa bin Jassim Al-Thani and members of the QC Board of Directors on 29 August 2022 to discuss the latest legislative developments, laws, and regulations related to the local work environment.

One of the main points of discussion was the joint initiative between the Ministry of Labour (MoL) and Qatar Chamber (QC) regarding a proposal to approve an insurance policy for domestic workers for Qataris, in joint coordination between insurance companies and recruitment offices.

The motion indicates that the insurance policy covers the worker's unwillingness to work, worker's escape, work injury, or in the event of death, the value of the travel ticket that will be claimed. The insurance policy compensates the employer according to the extent of the damage.

The Minister of Labor and the QC Chairman was briefed on the services provided by the MoL office to business owners and company managers in order to facilitate procedures and expedite transactions.

Dr. Al Marri highlighted the importance of the MoL to continue coordination and cooperation with the QC to address labor issues.
