This course will provide lawyers, human resource professionals, executives, and employers in general guidance on key legal and compliance considerations in the Indonesia, especially since new ways of working become increasingly embedded as the pandemic begins to recede.
The Job Creation Law (Law No. 11 of 2020), enacted in November 2020, introduced fundamental changes to Indonesia’s employment laws and regulations. These changes, including to expatriate employment, employee entitlements and, perhaps most importantly, the termination process, are of keen interest and vital importance to companies, both foreign and domestic, in Indonesia and could have a profound effect on how they do business.
As employers were adapting to the new regime, Indonesia’s Constitutional Court ruled in late 2021 that the Job Creation Law is conditionally unconstitutional and ordered its amendment. This development has raised legal concerns and left employers wondering what to expect next and how they should proceed.
An equally important focal point in Indonesian manpower law are the developments brought about by Covid-19. The pandemic prompted the Indonesian government to issue a flurry of regulations concerning, among other things, the use of foreign workers, the adjustment of wages and benefits, contributions to the national social security program, flexible work arrangements, workplace prevention and control of Covid-19, and government assistance and tax facilities.
Mastering these changes in Indonesian manpower law and regulatory compliance is essential if businesses want to stay ahead of the curve and thrive in Indonesia.
