New charter to protect WC 2022 workers

A "workers' charter" has been drawn up by the organisers of the 2022 World Cup in a bid to protect the rights of migrant employees in Qatar.

Dec. 2, 2010: Sepp Blatter reveals Qatar as the 2022 host nation.
FIFA president Sepp Blatter reveals Qatar as the 2022 host nation in 2010.

• World Cup Daily: Tuesday

The Asian nation has come under fire for not doing enough to protect those working on getting the tournament ready in time.

Almost 200 Nepalese men reportedly died last year while working on construction projects, and the International Trade Union Confederation says up to 4,000 could die by 2022 if the current laws are not changed.

Complaints have also been lodged about the standard of accommodation many workers live in, while Qatar's “kefala” employment system has been criticised for infringing workers’ human rights.

FIFA had given Qatar's World Cup Supreme Committee until Feb. 12 to inform the governing body of how it plans to go about reforming working practices, and in response a 50-page charter -- entitled “Workers' Welfare Standards” -- has been produced in conjunction with the International Labour Organisation.

The charter states the following measures will be put in place:

• Health and Safety - foster and actively encourage a world-class health and safety culture

• Employment Standards - comply with the Supreme Committee's required employment standards and all relevant Qatari laws

• Equality - treat all workers equally and fairly, irrespective of their origin, nationality, ethnicity, gender or religion

• Dignity - ensure that workers' dignity is protected and preserved throughout their employment and repatriation

• Unlawful Practices - prohibit child labour, forced labour, and human trafficking practices

• Working and Living Conditions - create and maintain safe and healthy working and living conditions

• Wages - ensure that wages are paid to workers on time

• Grievances - prohibit retaliation against workers who exercise any rights deriving from the Supreme Committee's required employment standards or relevant Qatari laws

• Access to Information - provide access to accurate information in the appropriate language regarding workers' rights deriving from the Supreme Committee's required employment standards or relevant Qatari laws

• Training - provide workers with training on skills necessary to carry out their tasks, including areas related to health and safety.
