Understanding Qatar Gratuity Law

If you are not sure how exactly is End of Service Gratuity calculated in Qatar, then we are here to help you understand.

End of Service Gratuity is calculated based on the number of years you’ve worked for the company and the employment contract. The gratuity is calculated based on the expatriate worker’s last basic salary.

After the termination of the employment contract, an employee qualifies for end-of-service gratuity and leave salary. According to Article 54 of the Labor Law (Law No. 14 of 2004), the employee is qualified for a minimum of three weeks’ basic salary for each year of employment, as the end of service gratuity.

Article (54)
“In addition to any amounts that are due to the Worker at separation from service, the Employer shall pay the end of service gratuity to the Worker
who has completed employment of one year or more? Such gratuity shall be specified by the agreement of the two parties, provided that it is not less than the Wage of three weeks for every year of the years of his service. The Worker shall be entitled to gratuity for the fractions of the year in proportion to the duration he spent in service.

The Worker’s service shall be considered continuous if it is terminated in cases other than those stipulated in Article (61) of this Law and he is reinstated within two months of the date of separation.

The calculation of the gratuity shall be based on the Worker’s last Basic Wage. The Employer may deduct from the service gratuity any amount that the Worker owes him.”

Qatar’s Ministry of Administrative Development, Labor and Social Affairs (MADLSA) offers an online service where applicants can calculate the end-of-service gratuity using their official website. You can visit  for calculation, please note this link does not open from all countries.

According to the old Labor Law, workers should be paid 4 weeks a year for working 5-10 years, and 5 weeks if they’ve worked for more than 10 years. That clause was part of the old law and it is no longer valid.
