Indonesia's New Job Creation Bill – What Every Employer Needs to Know

Indonesia's "omnibus" job creation bill has come into law, the changes apparently fuelled by the need to help Indonesia's economy in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

As the bill relaxes Indonesia's complex web of business, labour and environmental laws in an attempt to attract investment and stimulate the economy, thousands have made their voices heard by taking to the streets in protest. We know that workers are unhappy, but what does the Bill mean for the employer?

In this interactive live session, our Singapore employment lawyers Seow Hui Goh and David Lee aim to discuss the key issues relating to this nuanced question with Indonesian employment lawyer Mario Sinjal.
