  • EXPATRIATES WORKING IN INDONESIA: ARE THEY PERMANENT OR FIXED TERM EMPLOYEES?

    In Indonesia, despite it being generally accepted that a foreign employee is by nature a fixed term employee, recent rulings of the Industrial Relations Court or the Supreme Court have given rise to some arguments among scholars, legal practitioners and jurists since the rulings have recognized foreign employees as ‘permanent’ employees and therefore entitled to severance pay upon termination of their employment in Indonesia.
