How to Request Authentication of Employment Contract in Qatar

The employment contract is one of the most important pieces of documents that employees need to have in order to successfully further your career in the State of Qatar. It is one of the jobs of the Ministry of ِAdministrative Development, Labor and Social Affairs to thoroughly review these employment contracts, and make sure that they are duly authenticated. The MADLSA also ensures that the employment contract complies with the Labor Law of Qatar.

You will need to have your work contract authenticated, as well as your work service certificate. The same is true for your personal sponsorship and your profession amendment.

The authentication process for the work contract is simple. Just pay a visit to the Ministry of Labor’s Labor Department. As this process must be done in person, you will need to bring three copies of the contract with you. You should also have a copy of your Establishment ID with you, as well as the visa and ID of the new employee.

For the Work Service Certificate, you should have it authenticated by bringing three copies of your service certificate. You should also bring along a copy of the Establishment ID, your ID, as well as your bank statement. Keep in mind that the bank statement should be recent and accurate, and must include details on your salary amount. Complete this process in person at the Labor Department as well.

As for your personal sponsorship, you can authenticate this contract using three copies of the contract plus a copy of the sponsored person’s work visa. Bring your copy of the sponsor’s ID as well. For your Profession Amendment, you will also need three copies of the new contract. Don’t forget to prepare a copy of the Establishment ID, as well as your employee’s ID. All these must be done in person at the Labor Department to complete the authentication process.

It is important for the MADSLA to ensure that all employees and employers are protected in order to foster a healthier work environment in the country. In order for companies to thrive, employees must be aware of their rights and the proper terms and conditions of their work. Employers should also be able to set proper expectations for all employees so that workers will be happily compensated for all of their efforts.

This is why it is crucial to have all of your work-related documents both authenticated and verified to ensure that all paperwork is in order.
