Understanding leave policies in Indonesia can be complex, with national holidays and regional variations based on employee agreements. As you build your team, grasping these regulations is crucial. This guide offers comprehensive insights into Indonesia's leave policies, ensuring you're well-informed before starting your recruitment process. Employers looking to hire employees from Indonesia or through an Employer of Record (EOR) in Indonesia must be well-versed in these regulations to ensure compliance and effective workforce management.

Annual Leave (Vacation)

In Indonesia, employment contracts mandate a minimum of 12 days of paid annual leave per year after completing one full year of employment. Employees who have worked for the same employer for six consecutive years are entitled to one month of leave in their seventh and eighth years of service.

Sick Days

When employees in Indonesia are sick or injured, they are entitled to paid sick leave with a medical certificate confirming their condition. Long-term sick leave, extending beyond one year, requires a doctor's written recommendation.

Duration Payment Percentage Paid By
First 4 months 100.00% Employer
4th to 8th months 75.00% Employer
8th to 12th months 50.00% Employer
From 1 year until termination 25.00% Employer

Maternity Leave

Employees in Indonesia are eligible for three months of fully compensated maternity leave. This leave is remunerated at 100% of the standard salary rate.

Paternity Leave

New fathers in Indonesia are granted two days of leave for the birth of their child or in case of a miscarriage.

Parental Leave

Employees in Indonesia are entitled to paid child leave in various situations, including 2 days of leave for their child's circumcision, 2 days for their child's christening, 2 days for their child's wedding, and 2 days for the loss of their child.

Family Leave 

In Indonesia, workers can receive paid leave for important family events. This includes three days for their own wedding, two days for their child's baptism, two days for their child's wedding, one day for mourning the death of a household family member, and two days for the death of a spouse, parent, in-law, or child.

Unlike the Family Medical Leave Act in the United States, Indonesian labor law does not offer provisions for long-term family care leave. Therefore, if a remote team member in Indonesia needs extended leave due to a family emergency, you will need to follow your company’s internal policies.
