Qatar blacklists 807 companies for violating labour laws

The Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs blacklisted 807 companies for violation of labour laws in the first half of this year.

The ministry has so far banned 3,913 companies — around five percent of the total number of companies registered in Qatar.

If a company is blacklisted by authorities, they are barred from recruiting new workers until further notice.

Mohamed Al Meer, Director of the Work Relation Department at the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, said that the banned companies cannot bid for government tenders or apply for warehouses.
