In a statement following her participation in a workshop organised by the National Human Rights Committee (NHRC) under the title “The European Union and Human Rights”, Arena said that many reforms have been adopted in the labour market in Qatar, adding that these reforms included the abolition of the kafala (sponsorship) system, freedom of workers to change jobs, setting up of a minimum wage, health and safety mechanisms in the workplace, and other measures.
