  1. Working Day Rules in Indonesia

The Indonesian government regulates the working hours that companies may apply in the Manpower Law No. 13 of 2013 .

In the law, companies in the archipelago can apply two schemes, namely 5 working days for companies that implement 8 operating hours per day, and 6 working days for companies that implement 7 operating hours.

The number of working hours and working days listed is the maximum number that can be applied by the company.

This means that the employer can apply the working hours of an amount or less than the provisions.

Furthermore, these working hours are also effective working hours which do not count as rest periods.

In other words, rest hours are not part of the 8 hour working day.

Then, what about companies that ask employees to work beyond the time limit specified in the Manpower Act? ?

Through the Decree of the Minister of Manpower No. 102 of 2004, companies are obliged to pay overtime wages to employees who work outside of operational hours.

There are two conditions for overtime pay. First, there must be an agreement from the employee regarding the overtime pay.

Second, the maximum overtime work is 3 hours a day and 14 hours for one week.

How to calculate the number of working days in a month, and how to calculate employee hours

Referring to the number of working hours that have been stipulated in the Manpower Act, the calculation of the number of working days in a year for an employee is:

  • 52 weeks x 40 hours = 2080 hours

Meanwhile, the number of working days for employees in a year will be different for each employee:

  • 52 weeks x 5 (for companies that apply 5 working days) = 260 working days 
  • 52 weeks x 6 (for companies that apply 6 working days) = 312 working days

From the total number of working days in a year, we can also calculate the number of working days in a month, with the formula:

  • 260 working days (for companies that apply 5 working days): 12 = 22 working days
  • 312 working days (for companies that apply 6 working days): 12 = 26 working days
