Policies and Procedures
Georgetown University in Qatar (GU-Q) Human Resources Policies are the primary means for communicating and interpreting human resources policies, programs, and procedures to people at GU-Q. The policies are in keeping with the values and goals of the University and are compliant with Qatar Labor Law. The information is published and maintained so that human resources matters can be handled more consistently and equitably throughout the University.
The policies will be updated periodically to reflect changes in GU-Q policy and in both U.S. and Qatar law. However, no provisions in these policies, or in separate memoranda or pamphlets are, or should be construed as, an implied or expressed contract or guarantee of employment or contractual obligation of the University.
The University reserves the right to interpret, change, modify, add, delete or not apply all or part of the provisions of these policies at any time.
Questions concerning the applicability and interpretation of the policies should be discussed with the Office of Human Resources. Please click on a links below for a full description of the respective policies.
