Indonesia’s employment laws are complex. We regularly provide advice to our multinational clients on all types of employment matters, including fixed term and permanent contracts, mass terminations, labour unions, strikes and employment disputes, as well as outsourcing, severance entitlements in mergers and acquisitions and manpower contingency plans. M&T also has extensive first-hand experience in negotiations with employees and labour unions as well as regular tasks such as drafting employment contracts, outsourcing and secondment agreements, company regulations and collective labour agreements.

For instance, M&T has advised a multinational bank on responding to a national strike affecting twenty branches throughout Indonesia. Negotiations involved several government institutions and ended amicably.

We also represented many multinational companies in implementing their redundancy plans, helping them avoid unnecessary payments and easing the potential difficulties of the redundancy process.
