Doha: An energy company has come up with a harsh decision to renegotiate the contracts of its employees and they are offering almost 50 percent less salary in the new contract.

According to an employee quoted by the Arabic newspaper Al Sharq they reduced the salary by 50 percent and housing allowance by 30 percent.

A new management has taken over from the old one and the company has said that whoever was terminated from the job earlier will be retained by the firm.

According to the report by Al Sharq they have given two weeks to employees to think over the new contract and sign the same with new conditions.

A citizen who was affected by this decision told the daily that in all likelihood he will end up in jail as he has many payment obligations and the new offer will not cover all the obligations, especially because he is a father of many children and called for competent authorities to help solve his problem.
