Qatar 2022 Organizers To Publish Workers' Welfare Standards In December
Qatar 2022 "has responded to the latest critical report surrounding conditions for migrant workers involved in the nation’s huge infrastructure development" leading in to the World Cup by stating that they "are formalizing welfare standards that contractors must implement," according to SOCCEREX. The Qatar 2022 Supreme Committee on Monday said that it informed Amnesty Int'l "about the development of a worker welfare committee, and plans to publish workers’ welfare standards by next month." The organizing body for the delivery of the World Cup added that standards will be in line with Qatari law and int'l best practices and "set clear guidelines from recruitment to repatriation." Qatar 2022 said in a statement, "Compliance with the law and Q22's standards will be a contractual obligation for companies working on Q22 projects and will be transparently and robustly monitored through a three-tier compliance and auditing structure" (SOCCEREX, 11/19).
