MOJ ISSUES SERIES OF GUIDES EXPLAINING QATARI LAWS

The Legal and Judicial Studies Center at the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) has issued a series of guides to raise awareness and introduce the new Qatari laws that are directly relevant to the public.

The Ministry of Justice said in a statement on Tuesday that these manuals come in the framework of the initiative launched by the Minister of Justice, HE Dr Hassan Lahdan Saqr al-Muhannadi, under the title ‘Explanation of Qatari Legislation’ aiming at enriching the Qatari legal library with explanations of the laws that would benefit law professionals and researchers as well as those interested in this field.

Among the legal guidelines issued by the Center is the legal guide related to the settlement of labor disputes which highlights the State of Qatar’s record in the field of labor rights at the international level, and its great attention to the affairs of expatriate workers and keenness on protecting their rights. The Qatari legislator established the ‘Labor Disputes Settlement Committee’, which deals with the adjudication of all individual disputes arising from the application of the provisions of the Labor Law or the labor contract.
