Termination due to Maternity

By expatqatar2016new

Hi All,

I am working in a private organization in Qatar for more than a year. When i applied for my maternity leave, without any prior notice they issued a termination letter without stating any particular reason. 

Can i raise a complaint against the organization? What is the procedure?

Dear Ma'am,

Article (96)

A female worker who has been employed by an employer for a complete year shall be entitled to

maternity leave with full pay for a period of fifty days. Such maternity leave shall include the

period before and after the delivery provided that the period following the delivery shall not be

less than thirty five days.

This leave shall be granted subject to a medical certificate issued by a licensed physician stating

the probable date of delivery.

If the remaining period of the leave after delivery is less than thirty days the female worker may

be granted a complementary leave from her annual leave. Otherwise the complementary period

shall be deemed to be a leave without pay.

If the medical condition of the female worker prevents her from resuming her work after expiry of

her leave referred to in the preceding paragraphs the female worker shall be deemed to be on

leave without pay provided that the period of her absence from works shall not exceed sixty

consecutive or interrupted days and provided that a medical certificate of her medical condition

shall be produced from a licensed physician.

The obtaining by the female worker of the delivery leave shall not prejudice her entitlement to her

other leave.

Regards,

It all depend on what type of contract you are working in and what is the agreement with your company.

The act of your company itself show's there is know professionalism and just can imagine the people who runs the business.

Just rethink and find the necessary solution by your self. Don't waste too much time on this issue as long as you have a different income.

I am not against that you are going to the Human rights commission, unless you have clear document to present.

First request officially the reason for your termination.. In addition go to the human rights commission and file a complaint..
