Qatar ‘dismantles’ its Kafala system and introduces major new labour reforms


The Ministry Of Administrative Development, Labour, and Social Affairs [MADSLA] has announced major changes in the country’s labour law, allowing migrant workers to change jobs without their employer’s permission and introducing a non-discriminatory minimum wage.
