In response to criticism of the Kafala system, Law No. 1 of 2015 was adopted on 18 February 2015 to better regulate and protect employee payments, including by changing Section 66 of the Labour Law No. 14 of 2004. The law requires employers to pay their employees` salaries through direct bank transfers from the employer`s local Qatari account in Qatari currency to a Qatari account in the employee`s name. Under Qatari Labour Law No. 14 of 2004, among the minimum obligations due to workers is an end-of-service benefit (EOS) which is a sum of money that employers pay to their employees at the end of the employment contract. Several articles are devoted to changing the details and specific minutes of this provision. When the Al-Khalifa began to focus on Bahrain, rival Al-Thani, now Qatar`s ruling family, consolidated their control over the Qatar Peninsula during the nineteenth century. 14 of 2004, any worker who has worked for the same employer for a period of one year or more is entitled to EOS in addition to all other payments due to the termination of his employment relationship.
