FIFA: Pay for Harm to Qatar’s Migrant Workers
Global Coalition Calls for Financial Remedy for Deaths, Wage Theft

(London) – Hundreds of thousands of migrant workers in Qatar have not received financial
compensation or any other adequate remedy for serious labor abuses suffered while building and
servicing infrastructure for the FIFA World Cup, which begins in November 2022, Human Rights Watch
said today.
On May 19, Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, FairSquare, and a global coalition of migrant
rights groups, labor unions, international football fans, abuse survivors, and business and rights groups
said that the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) and the government of Qatar
should provide remedy for serious abuses that migrant workers have suffered since the 2022 World Cup
