Better Work Indonesia (BWI), a partnership programme between the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the International Finance Corporation (IFC) – a member of World Bank Group prepared the following summary highlighting the key changes and novelties introduced by the Job Creation Law and its accompanying government regulations. This practical document only covers areas of the law that are part of BWI’s scope of labour assessment or are more relevant for the garment and footwear industry. It draws heavily from the consultation process between BWI and the Ministry of Manpower on the meaning and applicability of the new rules as well as a series of public dissemination sessions done by the Ministry.
This guide is limited in scope. Therefore, BWI advises all stakeholders to read the new Law and Regulations in their entirety.
