Contracts & Agreements

Employment contracts are legally binding documents that are recommended for different kinds of employment in Indonesia: fixed-term and indefinite-term. For both, the employment contract lays out important information such as the designation, the salary, working hours and other policies.

Fixed-term

This kind of employment contract has a definite duration for which an employee may be associated with a project or a company. With a maximum initial term of 2 years, these contracts can be repeatedly renewed upon mutual agreement from both parties. These are called Perjanjian Kerja Waktu Tertentu (PKWT).

Open-ended or indefinite-term

This contract specifies no specific end date to the association of an employee with a project or company. This contract can be used to hire full-time as well as part-time employees.
With An EOR solution, your employees sign a legal contract with the Employer Of Record while they share a normal working relationship with you.

Visa

There are different kinds of work visas based on the duration of stay for a worker. These include:

ITAS (Izin Tinggal Terbatas)

ITAS is a temporary stay permit that is valid for anywhere between 6 months to 1 year. It’s recommended you apply for this visa at least 15-30 days before intended departure date.

KITAP (Kartu Izin Tinggal Tetap)

KITAP is a permanent stay work permit that’s only open to those who hold ITAS. Unlike any other visa in Indonesia, KITAP is valid for 5 years, which can get extended if there are no changes to the expat’s status.
This is not an exhaustive list of works visas - please get in touch with one of our experts to learn which visa your employee needs to get before beginning work in Indonesia.

Leaves

Every employee working in Indonesia is provided different types of leaves throughout the year. These include:

Annual Leave

Full-time employees in Indonesia are entitled to 12 days of annually paid leave after 1 year of service. Employees with continuous service to a single employer for six years are eligible for a one-month leave in their seventh year of employment and an additional one-month leave in their eighth year of service.

Parental Leave

Maternity leave is issued to mothers for a duration of 3 months. This leave is fully paid. Fathers get a paid paternity leave for 2 days. Additionally, parents also get an annual ‘parental paid leave’ for events such as marriage, circumcision, baptism, or death of a child for a total of two days per event every year.

Sick Leave

While sick leave is not mandatory under legislation in Indonesia, it may be given as a benefit by the employer. For long-term sick leaves, upon submitting a doctor’s certificate, an employee may receive paid sick leaves as per the following compensation structure:
Months Compensation
0 - 4 months
100% salary
4 - 8 months
75% salary
8 - 12 months
50% salary

Termination & Severance

Termination

Employers are required to notify the employee, the district & provincial labor offices, and the Industrial Relations Court (IRC) of the intent to terminate with valid reason. Once the employee accepts it, the agreement ends after a notice period which is typically 30 days.

Severance Pay

Employees in Indonesia are entitled to severance pay, the amount of which depends on the duration of their service. For someone with less than a year of service, the severance pay will be capped at a month’s salary. As the number of years increase, the severance amount will subsequently be increased up to a maximum of 9 months severance for more than 8 years of service.
