Cabinet approves draft decision on conditions of part-time work in government sector

By QLNews

At its regular meeting held yesterday, the Cabinet gave its nod of approval to a draft decision on the terms and conditions of a part-time work system in government agencies.

His Excellency the Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sheikh Khalid bin Khalifa bin Abdulaziz Al Thani presided over the meeting held at the Amiri Diwan.

After the meeting, His Excellency the Minister of Municipality and Environment and Acting Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs Abdullah bin Abdulaziz bin Turki Al Subaei made the following announcements:

 The beginning of the Cabinet meeting saw HE the Minister of Public Health share the latest updates in the country’s efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19.

The Cabinet agreed on the continuation of the preventive and precautionary measures in place against the COVID-19 pandemic

Following that the Cabinet approved the terms and conditions of the part-time work in government entities.

This system seeks to provide more flexible options for Qatari employees to take into account their circumstances and needs.

It comes within the framework of the State’s plans to maintain a strong, stable family that enjoys support and care as well as to enhance job efficiency.

In particular, it takes into account family conditions, as this system provides Qatari women with greater opportunities to achieve a balance between the needs and requirements of caring for family and children on the one hand and work requirements on the other.

The part-time system involves cutting the number of working hours per week by half and by no less than half the number of working hours per day.

Part-time work will be at the request of the employee and with the approval of the government entity, in line with the provisions of this decision.

Furthermore, the Cabinet approved a draft decision of the Minister of Endowments (Awqaf) and Islamic Affairs regarding the procedures for disbursing from the Zakat Fund account.

Under the provisions of the decision, the disbursement of zakat from the Zakat Fund with national Islamic banks, and is limited to the eight zakat banks, in accordance with the conditions considered legal.

The Cabinet also gave a green light to Qatar's contribution to financing United Nations peacekeeping operations.

It also okayed a draft twinning agreement between the Municipality of Doha in the State of Qatar and the Municipality of Beirut in the Lebanese Republic.
