The COVID-19 pandemic has spread to more than 100 countries. This pandemic has not only affected people’s health but also significantly impacted the economy of many countries and the world of employment. Many companies in Indonesia’s garment sector have suffered heavy losses. Many workers were in furlough or experienced problems with seeing their rights and entitlements respected (e.g. annual festive bonus (THR) payment) and some were even laid off (PHK).
This Guide has been developed by Better Work Indonesia, in consultation with the Ministry of Manpower of Indonesia, to support garment and footwear enterprises who are forced to engage in retrenchment processes.
