Workers constructing a stadium for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar are being paid as little as 45p ($0.76, 0.57 euros) an hour, British newspaper The Guardian reported on Wednesday.
The newspaper said that some of the 100 labourers working on the 40,000-seat Al-Wakrah Stadium were working for up to 30 days a month and earning less than £4.90 per day.
Stadium workers also told The Guardian that their passports were being held by their manager, in an apparent contravention of the organisers' own welfare charter.
A spokesperson for the Qatar World Cup's Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy told The Guardian: "There are challenges with calculation of overtime pay and hours, and we are working with the contractor to rectify any non-compliance."
A report in the paper on Monday said that some labourers had not been paid for over a year and were living in squalid conditions.
Qatar is spending around £134 billion on infrastructure ahead of the tournament, but it has been accused of human and labour rights violations over its treatment of migrant workers, most of whom come from Asia.
Doha has rejected charges that construction workers are being mistreated and has announced a series of measures to improve their conditions.
In May, Qatar announced it would abolish a controversial 'sponsorship' system, which leaves foreign workers at the mercy of their employers.
The International Trade Union Confederation warned in June that as many as 4,000 workers could die in construction site accidents by the time the 2022 World Cup kicks off.
