2022 World Cup host Qatar loosens rules for migrant workers
Says new policies guarantee freedom of movement, with employees generally free to leave
Qatar has introduced long-expected reforms to policies governing its vast foreign-labor force, though the changes still require workers to seek clearance from their bosses before leaving the country.
The 2022 World Cup host nation said the new policies came into effect on Monday.
Qatar says the new policies guarantee freedom of movement, with employees generally free to leave so long as they inform their employer first.
