Doha: Ministry of Labor has updated the Employment Contract Authentication e-Service. With the new renewal, the contracts will be automatically verified as soon as the application for contract authentication is completed.
All other employment contracts will be scrutinized in this way, except for employment contracts in specialized professions in the Automated Contract Auditing Service. Contracts with specialized professionals require auditing for professional certificates. Contract authentication procedures will be expedited with the upgrade of the service.
A smart card and a valid bank payment card are mandatory for the company for contract authentication services. Launched in June 2020, the contract authentication e-service has already completed the authentication process of 900,000 contracts without the evaluation of government service centers. The Ministry of Labor aims to launch a comprehensive e-system for all services.
