What is End of Service Gratuity?

According to Qatar Labour Law, End of Service Gratuity is a sum of money stipulated to be paid to an outgoing employee based on the period of service.

This is calculated based on your employment contract and the number of years you have worked for the company.

This article explains the Labour Law regarding End of Service Gratuity and how you can calculate the end of service gratuity using the online tool by the Ministry. We have also included a free calculator in English.

Qatar’s Ministry of Administrative Development, Labor and Social Affairs (MADLSA) provides an online service that allows applicants to calculate the end of service gratuity on its official website. However, this page is only available in Arabic.

For your convenience, DohaGuides.com has developed a similar online calculator in English. You can check the calculator below:

The end of service gratuity is calculated under the Labour Law No. 14 of 2004.

End of Service Gratuity: What the Law Says

Upon termination of the employment contract, an employee is entitled to end-of-service gratuity and leave salary. In accordance with Article 54 of the Labour Law (Law No. 14 of 2004), for each year of employment, the employee is eligible for a minimum of three weeks basic salary as the end-of-service gratuity.

As per Article 81 of the said law, if the employment contract is terminated for any reason before a worker takes his annual leave, he shall be entitled to payment in lieu of annual leave equivalent to his wage for the leave days to which he is entitled.

When the employment contract is terminated, the employer is responsible for repatriating the employee back to the place from where he was recruited or any her place agreed by the parties. However, if the worker joins another employer before departure from the country, then this obligation shifts to the new employer.

As per Article 15 of Law No 14/2004,

“In addition to any amounts due to the Worker at the end of his/her term of service, the Employer shall pay an end-of-service gratuity to the Worker who has been employed for a period of one full year or more as of the effective date of this Law.

The gratuity shall be determined and agreed by both parties, provided it is not less than a three-week-pay for each year of service.

The Worker is further entitled to get a gratuity for fractions of the year based on the entire duration of service proportionately. The Employer shall be entitled to deduct from the gratuity the amounts the Worker owes to the Employee.”

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 returned to service within two months of its termination.

  • The last basic salary shall be the base for the calculation of the gratuity.
  • The employer is entitled to deduct from the gratuity any due amount to be paid by the worker.

Is Gratuity Higher If Employee Has Worked For More Than 5 Years?

As per the current law (Law No 14 of 2004) gratuity shall be agreed upon by employer and employee, provided that it is not less than a three-week remuneration for every year of employment.

The clause that says a worker should be paid 4 weeks/year for working 5-10 years and 5 weeks/year for more than 10 years, was part of the old labour law and is not valid anymore.

Will Gratuity Be Paid in Case of Worker’s Death?

According to Article 55 of the Labour Law, if the worker dies during the service, regardless of the cause of death, the employer shall deposit with the treasury of the competent court any wage or other entitlements due to the worker in addition to the end of service gratuity within a period not exceeding fifteen (15) days from the date of the death.

The deposit minutes shall contain a detailed report indicating the method of calculating the amounts referred to. The employer shall deposit a copy of the minutes with the Department.

Can the Employer Terminate Employee Without Gratuity?

According to Article 61 of the Labour Law, there are cases in which an employer may dismiss an employee without the payment of the end of service gratuity.

Instances of gross misconduct include the violation of written instructions pertaining to worker safety, employee intoxication while at work, and the disclosure of secret information regarding the employer.
