Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Manpower and Transmigration Minister Muhaimin Iskandar has agreed to implement a moratorium on the outsourcing system, relating to the recruitment of workers in Indonesia.
"I agree that the government must closely observe the outsourcing system implemented in the country and stop companies from outsourcing jobs," Manpower and Transmigration Minister Muhaimin Iskandar said.
"I agree that the government must closely observe the outsourcing system implemented in the country and stop companies from outsourcing jobs," he said here on Tuesday.
Muhaimin added that officers from the local administration that issued outsourcing permits to companies must keep a close watch on the companies' recruitment systems in order to ensure that Regulation Number 13/2003, on human resources in Indonesia, was not flouted.
He noted that East Java province was the only local administration in Indonesia that had temporarily put an embargo on the outsourcing system within its territory.
The outsourcing system has been controversial in Indonesia for years because it often led to low payment and an uncertain future for local workers. (*)
