New HR law in place to set salary, allowances for government employees

By QLNews

The new Law No.15 for 2016, that was passed recently, will usher in changes to the way people are hired at government jobs.

Government employees can be hired for a salary higher than the stipulated pay for their grade if their professional experience exceeds the minimum requirements for the position, Gulf Times reported.

In such cases, the salary will be determined based on the number of additional years of experience a person has vis-à-vis what is required for the job grade concerned.

The regulations continue to say that the government employer can allocate accommodation for its employees or provide them with housing allowances.

Non-Qatari employees who do not get government-allocated accommodation can be paid a housing allowance based on their employment contract.

Employees who are assigned extra working hours will have to be compensated. For disabled employees, daily working hours will be reduced by one hour.

Non-Qatari employees can get furniture allowance. For non-Qataris recruited from abroad, they, their spouses and three children will be entitled to air tickets once a year for their annual leave and upon termination and final repatriation.

However, if a non-Qatari couple works for government or government-funded or owned entities, only one of them will enjoy such a privilege.
