QUESTION:

I have resigned from a company after working with it for the last 15 years. My full salary is QR7,000 with the basic being QR4,500. I have gone on vacation four times only in these 15 years. The company offered paid leave for every two years. Does Qatar Labour Law provide paid leave every year? Since I have resigned, can I claim my remaining leave salary and how will it be calculated, every year or two years?

ANSWER:

Upon completion of one continuous year in the service of the employer, the employee shall be entitled to an annual leave with pay. This leave shall not be less than three weeks (Article 79 of Law No 14 of 2004 effective January 2005) /two weeks (prior January 2005 as per Article 47 of Law No 3 of 1962) for the worker whose service is less than five years and four weeks for the worker whose service is more than five years.

The employer may on a written request of the worker postpone not more than half of the annual leave to the year following the year of its entitlement. Article 81 stipulates that the worker shall be entitled to payment in lieu of his annual leave equivalent to his wage for the leave days to which he is entitled if the contract is terminated for any reason before the worker takes his leave.

Discuss the matter with employer and seek assistance from the Labour Department as the worker may not waive his entitlement to the annual leave and any agreement to the contrary shall be void.
