Indonesia’s Ministry of Manpower (MoM) has issued eagerly awaited rules on those positions that can be held by expatriate workers. MoM Decree No. 228/2019 regarding Certain Positions that Can Be Occupied by Foreign Workers was issued after much discussion between the government and the business community.
Does the decree take into account the concerns of the business community? What do the new rules mean for expatriate workers in Indonesia and the companies that employ them?
Join Stephen Igor Warokka, a supervising partner in the immigration law and work permit practice of SSEK Legal Consultants, and AmCham’s Managing Director, Lin Neumann, for a briefing and a Q&A session on MoM Decree No. 228/2019 and its implications for companies. Darrell R. Johnson, senior of counsel at SSEK, will moderate the event.
Stephen was heavily involved in the process of helping to shape the contents of the decree, meeting with various foreign business chambers in Jakarta to help coordinate their input on the draft decree, and meeting with the MOM, the Vice President’s Office and the Coordinating Ministry for Maritime Affairs to discuss and help shape the draft decree and to raise the concerns of the business chambers and advocate on their behalf.
