Gratuity payment after 5 years

Hi all.

I had been working in one of the company since March 2005. By the beginning of May 2011, I resigned from my job and transferred to another company.

Since I had already completed over 5 years in my previous company, my gratuity payment will be 21 days per year or 30days (or 4 weeks) per year?

Can someone please inform me regarding the above?

According to many people in qatar living, this would be 1 month per year, but there is no supporting documentation.

Does anyone has any document clearly explaining gratuity payments after 5 years? Qatar Labour Law only specifies the mimimum gratuity payment which is based on minimim 3 weeeks and includes no more information.

Hope yo see some responses regarding the matter.

Thanks and regards.

The Labor Law is precise: Article 54: This gratuity shall be agreed upon by the two parties, provided that it is not less than a three-week wage for every year of employment. The worker shall be entitled to gratuity for the fractions of the year in proportion to the duration of employment.
The minimum gratuity pay as per the Qatar Labor Law is 21 days, but it is with the discretion of the Management to give u more than that. You can check your contract for that...
