The Qatari cabinet has decided to set up a separate department at the labour and social affairs ministries to closely monitor salary payment to workers once the Wage Protection System (WPS) is in place, the Peninsula has reported. The Gulf country is amending its labour law to make it comply with international standards. The WPS is one such step that will guarantee that workers get paid in time, said the report.
