Work Visa Refused for Single Female

A friend has just had her work visa refused because of new rules in the labour department apparently clamping down on single females wishing to work in Qatar but they do not possess professional qualifications i.e. they are not an engineer or QS or architect etc.  It seems the issue is with the sponsorship area and as she is not married and not under any family sponsorship then she cannot get the visa needed to start work.  She has been offered a job and signed the acceptance letter but now this has come to light.  Has anyone else experienced a similar issue?  Any advice is welcomed.  Thanks :)
