On May 30, 2024, Qatar’s Ministry of Labour announced new summer working hours to protect workers from the effects of the heat. The new rules will take place from June 1 to September 15, 2024.

Ban on outdoor work during the hottest part of the day

The Ministry has decided to prohibit work in open spaces during the hottest part of the day. From 10:00 AM to 3:30 PM, outdoor labor will be banned to safeguard workers from extreme heat conditions.

The primary purpose of these restrictions is to reduce heat-related illnesses among workers during the hot summer months. These new working hours are part of Qatar’s ongoing efforts to enhance labor conditions and protect worker welfare over the summer months.
