Midday working ban violations - have you noticed any?

By ishu369

Dear QLers,

Have you noticed companies, contractors and others flouting/violating the mid day work ban in open areas this summer?

This Thursday, while driving back from office I saw few laborers working in the scorching sun around 2.20 PM.

The building they were working for, I think, should have never encouraged such an act.

Open for comments.

Update from the Editor

According to the Ministry of Labour, there is a midday work ban. Companies should not ask employees to work outside from 11.30am - 3.30pm. The law became effective from June 15 and will be imposed till the end of August. [Read more]

Agreed new regulations only on paper, but implementation is a big Zero. Take example of new sponsorship law, which if released on paper which i sincerely doubt will never be implemented, citing practical difficulties. welcome to the uncertain world of Qatar.
