‘Qatar adopting best recruitment practices’

Qatar has made huge efforts to establish best practices in the recruitment process through a package of legislative reforms, Minister of Administrative Development, Labor and Social Affairs HE Yousef bin Mohammed al Othman Fakhroo has said.

In a speech at the Fair Recruitment Forum, Othman said Qatar is working on developing procedures that will entrench the principles of fair recruitment and combat all means of exploitation and deception, including methods that may lead to forced labour or human trafficking.

He said a number of agreements and Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) have been signed with labour-exporting countries to achieve the highest standards of employment and fair recruitment. 


The reforms adopted by Qatar in protecting the rights of expatriate workers have compelled recruitment agencies against imposing prohibitive recruitment fees on workers both in Qatar and in the labour-exporting countries, he said.

“We look forward to launching more workshops to raise awareness about the need to prevent workers being forced to pay recruitment fees and to develop policies and tools, which will help in addressing this problem.

The workshops will be providing the necessary support through the establishment of a voluntary technical working group comprising local stakeholders in the coming months. The group will meet to discuss the progress made and will also discuss possible ways of cooperation in the application of labour laws in Qatar,” he said.
