The Gulf state, which relies on about two million migrant workers for the bulk of its labour force, is also planning to ease curbs on changing employers, Qatar's administrative development, labour and social affairs ministry said.
Protesting workers, mostly from Bangladesh, told Al Jazeera that in addition to poor living conditions, they had not been paid for four months, the companies had failed to renew their work permits - making their status in Qatar illegal - and were not given the required letters that would allow them to switch employers.
On Wednesday, the ILO welcomed Qatar's move, which still needs an approval from the Advisory Council as well as the country's ruler, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani.
The State of Qatar joined the Organization in 1972, where an Office for the Organization of the State of Qatar was established in Doha in 2018, which supports the Government's business process development program.More news: Volvo Unveils Its First All-Electric Vehicle, the 400 Horsepower XC40 Recharge SUV
The level of the minimum wage, a key reform given the low pay for migrant workers in Qatar, the world's richest per-capita country, will be set later this year, the ILO said, and not discriminate between nationalities. Representatives from the Ministry of Administrative Development, Labour and Social Affairs; Ministry of Municipality and Environment, ILO and other national and global organisation participated the panel discussions.
The International Labour Organisation, a United Nations agency, says Qatari authorities have agreed to end kafala in January and also introduce "a non-discriminatory minimum wage, the first in the Middle East".
Sharan Burrow, General Secretary of the ITUC, said: "Qatar is changing".
"The new tranche of laws will bring an end to the kafala system of modern slavery", Burrow said.More news: Police arrest 2nd suspect in case of isolated Dutch family
A government fund to ensure workers are not disadvantaged by exploitative employers, while the state pursues recovery of entitlements. It has applied to the thousands of migrant workers, largely drawn from the Indian subcontinent, who have been working on the construction of new stadiums in Qatar ahead of the World Cup.
However, it was not stated what the minimum wage would be.
"We will be closely scrutinising the details of this announcement and pushing for any positive measures to be quickly and fully implemented".
"These steps will greatly support the rights of migrant workers while contributing to a more efficient and productive economy", the ILO said in a statement.More news: Jennifer Aniston THROWS SHADE at famous friend on newly-opened Instagram account
