Key points of labor reform in omnibus bill on job creation: What we know so far

first_imgThe government submitted the controversial omnibus bill on job creation to the House of Representatives on Wednesday, marking a milestone that will kick start deliberations on labor reforms that are intended to woo investors, boost economic growth and create jobs.  Some of the key highlights of the bill, a draft of which has been obtained by The Jakarta Post, cover issues related to foreign workers, wages, work hours, redundancy and social security. A one-off extra payment as a “token of appreciation” for workers, which the government calls a “sweetener”, is also introduced in the bill.“This is purely to create jobs amid the global uncertainty and the coronavirus crisis by transforming the country’s economy through the omnibus bill,” Coordinating Economic Minister Airlangga Hartato told the press at the House after submitting the bill. “As for now, we will raise the public’s awareness regarding the bill by involving government officials and lawmakers.” The office of the coordinating minister has formed a consultative team consisting of government officials, businesspeople and labor representatives. Still, the government has not yet published the bill for general scrutiny.Major labor groups including the Confederation of Indonesian Trade Unions (KSPI), the Congress of Indonesia Unions Alliance (KASBI) and the All-Indonesia Workers Union Confederation (KSPSI) have refused to join the coordination team. They have also rejected the bill because of its potential detrimental effect on labor rights.Here are some key points and changes related to labor reform in the omnibus bill on job creation compiled by the Post.Severance pay The calculation for basic severance pay remains unchanged, but overall rights for severance payments beyond basic allowances are either reduced or scrapped completely.The omnibus bill on job creation no longer mandates employers to pay for compensation of rights (UPH) for laid-off workers and instead stipulates that the rights can be regulated in a work contract, work agreement or corporate rules. According to Article 156 of the prevailing manpower law, UPH includes unredeemed annual paid leave, transportation costs and a certain sum from workers’ expenses for housing and medicines. The bill also cuts the upper limit for payments for recognition of service period (UPMK) to a maximum of eight months’ salary for a worker’s services of more than 21 years in a company. Article 156 in the manpower law caps the awards value higher at 10 months’ salary for more than 24 years of service.Meanwhile, rigid calculations on rights for severance payments, UPMK and compensation of rights (UPH) that are differentiated based on reasons for the lay-off, as stipulated in the prevailing manpower law, are all scrapped. Instead, the omnibus bill on job creation only requires employers to make severance payment and UPMK according to their time of service.Foreign workersIndonesia will open more chances for expatriates to work in the country, especially in start-ups.In the omnibus bill, foreign workers will also be allowed to work in Indonesia without a permit in positions that range from members of boards of directors and commissioners, and diplomatic or consular staff, to researchers and emergency engineers. Foreign workers in start-ups will also be exempted from work-permit requirements.This compares with a previous stipulation in Article 42 of Law No. 13/2003 on Manpower that only exempts diplomatic and consular staff from work permits for foreign workers.OutsourcingOutsourcing requirements would be significantly relaxed under the omnibus bill on job creation.Currently under Article 66 of the Manpower Law, workers from outsourcing agencies are prohibited from doing core tasks or those that directly relate to the production process. The prevailing rule stipulates workers from outsourcing companies can only have supporting functions.The omnibus bill on job creation amends this stipulation to open the possibility for outsourcing agencies to hire workers for various tasks, including freelance and full-time workers. This stipulation will be further regulated in a separate Government Regulation (PP).RemunerationGovernors across Indonesia will determine the minimum wage of each region, based on the inflation rate and economic growth in the region, to better reflect the need for salary adjustment. A so-called council for wages can provide input during the process, which would comprise government, business, labor and academic representatives. This stipulation is basically unchanged from the existing regulation.However, the significant difference under the omnibus bill on job creation is that labor-intensive industries will not have to adhere to regional minimum wages and the governors of respective provinces will use different formulas in their calculations. More details will be covered in a separate PP, according to the draft bill.Micro and small businesses are exempted from minimum-wage stipulations but must pay their workers above the poverty line rate, the draft states.Labor rightsMembers of the Confederation of Indonesian Trade Unions (KSPI) protest against the omnibus bill on job creation in front of the Parliament Building, Senayan, Central Jakarta, on Wednesday. (JP/Dhoni Setiawan)A prevailing article that stipulates workers’ rights for paid leave under certain circumstances has been deleted from the omnibus bill on job creation.Article 93 of the Manpower Law allows paid leave of three days when workers get married, two days when their children are circumcised or baptized or get married, or when their wives are in labor or undergoing an abortion. Workers whose family members pass away get one to two days’ unpaid leave in the current regulation.The omnibus bill, however, deletes this stipulation and will only cover regular paid leave rights that include at least 12 days a year for workers that have been with their companies for 12 consecutive months. “Companies can grant long leave, which is arranged in the work contracts, company regulations or work agreements,” the draft bill reads.Further, in a case where a company goes into bankruptcy or is liquidated, labor rights are to be prioritized prior to other payments including to creditors – a stipulation previously uncovered by the existing law.Work hoursEmployers can implement work hours beyond stipulation for specific types of work or business sectors. These special conditions will be further regulated in a separate PP, which were not previously covered by the existing Manpower Law.Work hours as stipulated by the omnibus bill on job creation are eight hours per day and 40 hours per week—five days in a week. Beyond that employers must pay overtime to workers but not exceeding four hours a day and 18 hours a week, according to the draft omnibus bill.LayoffThe omnibus bill on job creation aims to provide a better safety net for workers with a minimum of one year’s service as a separate PP will stipulate compensation payments, according to Article 61A.Employees can be laid off for reasons that include mergers, acquisitions, divestment, business efficiency, business closure after two years’ uninterrupted financial losses or as a result of force majeure, debt restructuring and bankruptcy, among other factors, based on Article 154A.Workers are still entitled to receive their salary and other rights –also including their work responsibilities— during dispute-settlement processes at industrial relations agencies or in court, according to Article 157A. These three stipulations were previously not covered by the current law.Meanwhile, the omnibus bill revokes Article 159, which allows workers to file a lawsuit to an industrial relations court or agency if they want to challenge the reasoning behind the decision to lay them off.Social securityA new social safety net mechanism is added to the omnibus bill on job creation to revise Article 18 of Law No. 40/2004 on the National Social Security System (JSN) and Article 6 of Law No 24/2011 on the Social Security Organizing Agency (BPJS).The social security program for laid-off workers was introduced on top of existing programs that currently cover health, work-related accidents, pensions, old age and life insurance. The BPJS will be responsible for the fund so long as the workers or their employers pay the premiums.“Sweetener” bonusThe government has long campaigned about a “sweetener” in the omnibus bill on job creation that will include an immediate salary bonus depending on workers’ length of service in their companies.According to the draft bill, workers will get the “sweetener” or bonus as follows: one year’s salary for service of less than three years, twice the salary for three to six years of service, three times the salary for six to nine years of service, four times the salary for nine to 12 years of service. Finally, five times the salary for workers with over 12 years of service.The bonus will only be applicable to medium and large companies as micro and small enterprises are exempt from the stipulation. The bonus is a one-off payment to be made within one year after the omnibus law on job creation becomes effective and details will be further regulated in a PP.Editor’s note: The article has been updated to include a section on severance pay.Topics :last_img read more

Upcoming Moto C, E phones may ditch stock Android for ZUK user interface

first_imgSince Lenovo has taken over the brand Motorola, a number of changes have been made to the Moto phones. But the most significant change might be coming now. A report suggests a senior Motorola executive has hinted that in the new Moto phones, likely to be Moto C and Moto E, may ditch stock Android and use ZUK users interface. To recall, ZUK interface is what Lenovo uses on its premium ZUK phones.According to a report by Gizmochina, Lenovo’s VP Alex Chen hinted that the upcoming Motorola smartphones were expected to run on ZUK’s ZUI. However, the report also stated that initially this information was spotted on the Alex’s Weibo account but hours later the post suddenly vanished. There is a possibility that the post has been deleted, states the report coming from the Chinese website.Also Read: Moto Z2 Force with dual cameras at the rear and front spottedThe ZUI UI till date has only been seen on ZUK phones by Lenovo. And now, the smartphone maker is expected to extend the OS to its Motorola brand as well. If the upcoming Motorola smartphones are really going to run on ZUK’s ZUI UI, the Moto devices will come with an added security layer. Lenovo, while describing the ZUK UI, notes “ZUI OS provides system-level protection from unwanted threats such as Malware and Trojans. The ability to create automatic security rules and protection engine make effective protection and tracking of APPS a sentinel surveillance tool.”Nothing confirmed yetadvertisementThe India Today Tech has sought details from Motorola on the GizmoChina report. In case of a statement from the company we will update the report here.The China website report doesn’t reveal which models will come with ZUK’s ZUI OS. However, it does highlights that there are high chances that the upcoming Moto C and E series models, dubbed to be Moto C, C Plus, E4 and E4 Force, will run on ZUI. Most probably it will be the ZUI v2.5.  However, speculations are also such that the upcoming top-end devices like the Moto Z2 and Z2 Plus can also include ZUI OS.Moto devices basically run on native Android OS, ever since Google acquired Motorola. It was later sold to Lenovo. To recall, the recently announced flagships – Moto G5 and G5 Plus — come packed Android 7.0 Nougat. We aren’t sure if the G5 models are the last Motorola devices to come with Android Nougat, neither are we quite sure on while models will come packed with ZUK’s ZUI OS and which ones with Android OS. To get a clear picture of what’s Lenovo actually up to with the upcoming Motorola phones, we need to wait unveil the company itself provides a clear picture on it.Moto C and C Plus smartphones are expected to launch in the upcoming days. Ahead of the launch, speculations and leaks about the devices have already give us a clear idea on how the smartphones are expected to be like. In terms of specifications, the Moto C will be powered by powered by a MediaTek MT6737m 64-bit quad-core processor. While, the smartphone will come packed with a 16GB of inbuilt storage, coupled with 1GB of RAM. Further, display wise, the smartphone will come with a 5-inch FWVGA display with 480×854 pixel resolutions and will be backed by a 2300mAh removable battery. On the optics front, the device is touted to come with a 5-megapixel camera on the rear, whereas on the front fits a 2-megapixel selfie snapper.While, the bigger bother, the Moto C Plus, although is expected to look pretty much similar to the Moto C, however, might differ a little in terms of specification. The device is expected to come with a slightly bigger screen with an HD display paired with either 1GB or 2GB of RAM. On the camera front, the upcoming Moto C Plus may sport an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front facing camera. The smartphone will be backed by a much bigger battery set up as compared to that of the Moto C. Moto C Plus will come with a 4000mAh battery and will further run on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box. Moto C Plus is expected to be a little expensive that the base model – Moto C.Also Read: Lenovo’s Moto C, C Plus launching in the coming months: Everything we know so farlast_img read more
