Qatar is all set to launch the new Wages Protection System (WPS) commencing from beginning of November 2015, whereby all private sector workers will be paid salaries online through banking channels within seven days of the due date . The new System will apply to all private companies covered by the labour law No.(14) of 2004.

(WPS) is a comprehensive electronic system initiated by Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs and QCB to monitor and document the process of worker wage payment at the establishments subject to the Labour Law No. (14) of 2004, ammended by Law No. (1) of 2015 with the view to ensuring that employers are committed to the wage payment process systematically and in a timely manner pursuant to the Rules and Conditions provided for in the Labour Law.

General Objectives of the System:

    • Protecting labour groups from manipulation of their financial entitlements.
    • Promoting security and stability in the State by establishing a safe work environment.
    • Strengthening the Human Rights principle in Qatar.
    • Saving workers and employers from keeping cash in their workplaces which may be exposed to loss or theft.
    • Enabling the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs to continuously access and be informed of the workers' information and compare them to the data in its possession in order to ensure compliance with the provisions of the Labour Law.
    • Reducing legal disputes between parties as well as effort and time wasting.
