Qatar implements closures for labour recruitment offices in violation of procedures

The Ministry of Labour has enforced closures on various recruitment offices, instilling the strict requirement for these establishments to adhere to the specific labour laws when it comes to procedures for licensing as well as the required conditions for labour recruitment.

In particular, the Ministry has revoked the licences of 23 labour recruitment offices and has taken action against these firms. Violations include being non-responsive to customer claims as well as complaints. Issues were also found for licensing labour recruitment from abroad.

This shows that the Ministry continuously controls proper regulations for these recruitment offices, and follows up with efforts to implement the proper rights of both the employers themselves and the domestic workers.

For reference, the recruitment agencies that were shut down are as follows:

  • Al Nasr Recruitment Agency
  • Al-Shuyoukh Manpower
  • Al-Meer Manpower
  • Friends Manpower Recruitment
  • On Point Recruitment Solution
  • Eurotec Manpower Recruitment
  • Regency Manpower Recruitment
  • Top Unique Manpower
  • Al Waad Manpower Recruitment
  • Al-Rashad Manpower Recruitment
  • Al Sharif Manpower Recruitment
  • Al Baraka for Manpower Recruitment
  • Asian Gulf Manpower Recruitment
  • White Manpower Recruitment
  • Dana Doha Manpower Recruitment
  • Al Nouf Recruitment Services
  • Royal Manpower Recruitment
  • Al Wajba Manpower Recruitment
  • Progressive Manpower Recruitment
  • Earth Smart Human Resources Company
  • Iram Manpower Recruitment
  • Al Safsaf Manpower Recruitment
  • Al Waab Manpower Recruitment

Moving forward, the Ministry will continue to hold inspection campaigns in order to ensure that recruitment offices adhere to the various laws governing the recruitment of domestic workers.
