Default Qatar labour law contract do people get the Arabic text translated

Hi all getting close to getting the local labour law contract from an agent in Qatar for a contract role at Qatargas, that agent is called Fircroft, they seem a good bunch, but I'm assuming correct to get the Arabic text translated independently on the contract presented before signing and to sign it before mobilisation?

I've been given a English "contract letter" to sign with the package we have agreed outlined but I'm assuming that's no real legal protection.

Cheers...

Fircroft have a good reputation.

The local contract may be of interest, but I wouldn't expect any of it to be negotiable. Surely Qatargas has an English translation. I think your assumption is correct. Rights are fairly meaningless and often difficult to enforce--that's part of the quid pro quo of the premium in salary you'll be receiving.

The arabic contract is standard Qatar Labour Law procedure , everyone get's one by law .

If it goes tits up they'll shaft you in any case . Sign it and then use it to light the BBQ
