Guide to omnibus bill on job creation: 1,028 pages in 10 minutes

first_imgBusinesses, however, have welcomed the bill due to the focus on streamlining business licenses, making Indonesia more open to foreign investment and a more flexible labor market.The omnibus bill on job creation would amend 73 laws and consists of 15 chapters and 174 articles. The government and businesspeople consider Indonesia to be over-regulated with a total of 43,511 central government regulations as well as ministerial-, agency- and regional-level rules.The landmark bill will affect every single Indonesian as it covers a wide range of issues from business and education to halal certification and regional government powers. Below is The Jakarta Post’s guide to the 1,028-page omnibus bill on job creation. Further, revocation of local regulations – at the provincial, governor, regency or city administration level – that contradict prevailing and higher laws and regulations can be done through Perpres, based on the omnibus bill. Article 251 of the Regional Government Law, meanwhile, only allows for revocation of province- and governor-level regulations by the governor as representative of the central government.Punishment for violating the amended Article 251 will result in an administrative sanction and delay in evaluation of draft regional regulations. The sanction of stopping budget transfers will be imposed on regional governments that still impose regional taxes or levies, which have been revoked by the president, according to Article 252 of the omnibus bill.Read also: Omnibus bill allows President to scrap bylaws, weakens regional administrations However, according to the amended Article 7 of the law, the BPJPH broadens partnerships for halal certification to registered Muslim mass organizations (ormas), on top of potential partnerships with related ministries or agencies, halal product guarantors (LPH) and the MUI, as stipulated in the prevailing law.Sovereign wealth fundChapter 10 on central government investment and the ease of national strategic projects mandates the establishment of a “special authority” agency led by the finance minister, a vehicle that President Jokowi has described as a sovereign wealth fund.Read also: Things you need to know about government’s sovereign wealth fundThe finance minister through the agency, to be called the Investment Management Agency, can invest in financial instruments, manage assets for investment, partner with trust funds, determine investment partners, give and accept loans and manage all assets, according to Article 146 of the omnibus bill.The agency can partner with third party entities in managing assets, forming joint ventures or other partnership models, according to Article 150. The finance minister will lead the board of directors and the state-owned enterprises minister will act as a member of the board, Article 157 stipulates. The Investment Management Agency will also be led by five commissioners, three from a professional background, one from the Finance Ministry and another from SOE Ministry, according to Article 158.Weaker regional government roleRegional governments’ role in business licensing will be weakened, if not scrapped completely for several types of licenses, according to amendments and new stipulations in the omnibus bill.Article 350 (4) of Law 23/2014 on regional government has been amended to require regional governments’ business licensing services to use electronic licensing systems that will be managed by and streamlined to the central government. There is no such rigid requirement in the existing law. Punishment for failure to streamline regional business licensing with the central government would result in the central government taking over regional governments’ business licensing functions.Read also: Omnibus bill to centralize permit processing, offer incentives for miners Relaxation of environment standardsThe omnibus bill on job creation significantly relaxes environmental standards for business activities that require an environmental impact analysis (Amdal). The bill amends Article 23 in Law 32/2009 on environmental protection and management that lays out the criteria that businesses must follow to request an Amdal prior to operation.The criteria includes changes in the natural landscape, resource exploitation, pollution, socio-cultural impact, conservation and cultural heritage, security risks, plants and animals, among others.The omnibus bill stipulates that only businesses that “have important effects on the environment, social, economic and culture” will require an Amdal. Details on this stipulation will be regulated in a Government Regulation (PP).Read also: Liberalization at what cost? Observers raise concerns over sustainability of investmentsFurthermore, the people who live in surrounding areas of business activities that require an Amdal would no longer be able to appeal the document, according to amendments to Article 26 of Law 32/2009. Environmental experts will also no longer be involved in environmental impact analysis, the omnibus bill reveals.The Amdal assessment committees, which comprise the environment agency, related technical institutions, environment and technical experts, environmental organizations and public representatives, are revoked in the draft bill.Revocation of building permitsA number of requirements and licenses required to build buildings are slated to be scrapped in the omnibus bill. The draft bill revokes around 26 articles, or almost half, of Law 28/2002 on buildings.Administrative requirements such as building permits (IMB), building ownership status and licenses for land rights, to licenses for architecture and purpose of buildings, among many others, stipulated in Law 28/22 are set to be cut in the omnibus bill.Read also: Omnibus law to scrap permit requirements for ‘simple’ buildings: Minister Last week the government submitted the controversial omnibus bill on job creation to the House of Representatives, aiming for a conclusion in deliberation within 100 days.President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo initiated the omnibus bill to improve the ease of doing business in Indonesia and attract investment, thereby boosting job opportunities and economic growth in Southeast Asia’s largest economy. Annual economic growth slumped to a three-year low of 4.97 percent in the fourth quarter of 2019 as investment and exports cooled.However, labor groups are protesting the bill over potential reductions in their rights, remuneration and job security. Observers have criticized the stronger role of central government, which could potentially pose risks to the checks and balances mechanism of Indonesia’s democracy. Environmentalists have warned that less stringent Environment Impact Analysis and building permit requirements would result in unsustainable growth. Licenses for safety, structural requirements, protection against fire and lightning strikes, as well as requirements for health, air, lighting, sanitation, building materials, building comfort, evacuation access and accessibility for disabled visitors are also set to be revoked.New business license regimePresident Jokowi has strengthened the role of the Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM) to streamline the issuing of all business licenses. The responsibility for issuing business licenses is currently spread across many government institutions and regional governments.Read also: Indonesia to get new business license regime with omnibus billThe omnibus bill on job creation strengthens existing regulations by simplifying the business license procedure across almost all business sectors, including maritime and fisheries, agriculture, forestry, energy and mineral resources, electricity and industry. Further, trade, standardization including halal certification, infrastructure and public housing, transportation, health, drugs and food, education and culture, tourism, posts, telecommunications and broadcasting, security and defense are also covered.The bill amends prevailing laws related to the aforementioned business sectors, aimed at easing the licensing process and doing business in the country. These new arrangements take up most of the proposed omnibus bill.Investment relaxationThe omnibus bill introduces a new list of sectors in which investment is prohibited, while others will be opened and regulated in a separate Presidential Regulation (Perpres). The Perpres will replace the notorious negative investment list (DNI) with a new investment list for priority sectors, government officials have said.Read also: There’s no way to boost exports: Jokowi says investment key to push economic growthArticle 12 of Law No. 25/2007 will be amended to no longer include a stipulation banning foreign investment in the negative investment list. Instead, business sectors closed for investment, both domestic and foreign, are listed as follows: narcotics, gambling, endangered flora and fauna, coral reefs, chemical weaponry, industrial chemical and ozone-endangering chemical materials.Looking at the media sector, for instance, a stipulation that foreign investors can only own media companies through a stock market mechanism – such as buying news organizations’ shares in an initial public offering – has been amended.Article 11 in Law No. 40/1999 on the press now loosely states that the “central government will develop the press through investment according to investment laws and regulations”.Labor reformOverall rights for severance payments, beyond basic allowances, are either set to be reduced or scrapped completely, even though the calculation for basic severance pay remains unchanged.Read also: Key points of labor reform in omnibus bill on job creation: What we know so farRigid calculations on rights for severance payments, payments for recognition of length of service (UPMK) and compensation for rights (UPH) that are differentiated based on reasons for the lay-off, as stipulated in articles 161 to 172 in the prevailing Law No. 13/2003 on manpower, are all going to be scrapped. Instead, the omnibus bill on job creation only requires employers to make severance payments and the UPMK according to the employees’ length of service.Expatriates will be allowed to work in more functions than only diplomatic affairs, as stipulated in Article 42 of the Manpower Law. In the omnibus bill, foreign workers will be allowed to work in Indonesia without a permit in positions that range from members of boards of directors and commissioners, and diplomatic or consular staff, to researchers and emergency engineers. Foreign workers in start-ups will also be exempted from work-permit requirements.Outsourcing requirements are to be significantly relaxed under the omnibus bill, as Article 66 of the Manpower Law that prohibits outsourced employees from undertaking more than a core task in a company is to be revised. The omnibus bill will open the possibility for outsourcing institutions to hire workers for various tasks, including freelance and full-time workers.Further, labor-intensive industries will not have to adhere to regional minimum wages and the governors of respective provinces may use different formulas in their calculations. More details will be covered in a separate PP, according to the draft bill. Micro and small businesses are exempted from minimum-wage stipulations but must pay their workers above the poverty line rate.The prevailing Article 93 that stipulates workers’ rights for paid leave under certain circumstances has been deleted from the omnibus bill. The circumstances currently covered include paid leave of three days when workers get married, two days when their children are circumcised or baptized or get married, or when their wives are in labor or undergoing an abortion. Workers whose family members pass away get one to two days’ unpaid leave in the current regulation.Workers who are members of the Confederation of Indonesian Trade Unions (KSPI) held an action to reject the Omnibus Law Cipta Karya in front of the Parliament Building, Senayan, Central Jakarta, Wednesday (02/12/2020). (JP/Dhoni Setiawan)The omnibus bill revokes Article 159 that allows workers to file a lawsuit in an industrial relations court or agency if they want to challenge the reasoning behind the decision to lay them off.A new social safety net mechanism has been added to the omnibus bill, called the social security program for laid-off workers and managed by the BPJS, so long as workers or their employers pay the premiums. This will be on top of existing programs that cover health, work-related accidents, pensions, old age and life insurance.The government is also set to introduce a new one-off bonus mechanism in the omnibus bill, requiring medium and large companies to pay an immediate salary bonus depending on the workers’ length of service in their companies. Termed a “sweetener”, the bonus is a one-off payment within one year after the omnibus law becomes effective.Stronger central governmentThe central government can change prevailing laws for the sake of acceleration of job creation through a PP and may consult with the House of Representatives in doing so, according to Article 170 of the omnibus bill.New stipulations in the omnibus bill may also empower the Halal Certification Agency (BPJPH) that operates under the Religious Ministry, to issue halal certificates for consumer products. Article 1 of Law 33/2014 on halal products guarantees currently stipulates that halal certification be based on guidance from the Indonesia Ulema Council (MUI). Other amendments that would weaken the Regional Government Law include revisions to Law 32/2009 on environmental protection and management, which will allow the central government to take over environment-related licenses from regional governments, including Amdals.Topics :last_img read more

Embezzlement trial opens for French ex-premier Fillon, wife

first_imgThe claims first emerged in January 2017, and torpedoed Fillon’s shot at the presidency in elections that year. Topics : French former prime minister Francois Fillon and his wife Penelope appeared in a Paris court Wednesday for the start of their trial on charges of embezzling over a million euros in an alleged fake-jobs fraud.The couple and Fillon’s former parliamentary colleague Marc Joulaud risk 10 years in jail and heavy fines.The eagerly-awaited trial of the former presidential hopeful and his wife was due to start on Monday, but was delayed over a lawyers’ strike. Investigators say Fillon, 65, paid Welsh-born Penelope, 64, the salary of a parliamentary assistant between 1998 and 2013 — up to 10,000 euros (almost US$10,900) a month — without her doing much, if any, actual work.The trial kicked off with technical arguments as to whether some of the alleged crimes happened too long ago to be prosecuted under France’s statute of limitations, and how to define the crime of misappropriating public funds.The court must decide these issues before it can examine the merits of the case. It could decide to refer the questions to an appeals court, in which case the trial would be postponed. If not, the defendants are expected to start presenting their case on Thursday. Did she work? They also contributed to the implosion of his rightwing Republicains party, pushing many voters toward the centrist party of now-President Emmanuel Macron.Fillon has denied the allegations and insisted that Penelope — charged with complicity — did real work for him in his rural constituency of Sarthe.But investigators say they have found little evidence of her efforts, and have seized on a 2016 newspaper interview in which Penelope declared: “Until now, I have never got involved in my husband’s political life”.She had made a similar statement to Britain’s Sunday Telegraph in 2007.Joulaud, 52, stood in for Fillon in parliament when he was a cabinet minister and also hired Penelope as an assistant.France’s National Assembly has joined the case as a civil party, and said it could seek over a million euros (dollars) in compensation.last_img read more

Coronavirus ‘Great Lockdown’ to shrink global economy by 3% in 2020: IMF

first_imgUnder the Fund’s best-case scenario, the world is likely to lose a cumulative $9 trillion in output over two years – greater than the combined GDP of Germany and Japan, she added.The IMF’s forecasts assume that outbreaks of the novel coronavirus will peak in most countries during the second quarter and fade in the second half of the year, with business closures and other containment measures gradually unwound.A longer pandemic that lasts through the third quarter could cause a further 3% contraction in 2020 and a slower recovery in 2021, due to the “scarring” effects of bankruptcies and prolonged unemployment. A second outbreak in 2021 that forces more shutdowns could cause a reduction of 5 to 8 percentage points in the global gross domestic product baseline forecast for next year, keeping the world in recession for a second straight year.”It is very likely that this year the global economy will experience its worst recession since the Great Depression, surpassing that seen during the global financial crisis a decade ago,” the IMF said in its report. “The Great Lockdown, as one might call it, is projected to shrink global growth dramatically.” The new forecasts provide a somber backdrop to the IMF and World Bank spring meetings, which are being held by videoconference this week to avoid contributing to the spread of the virus. The meetings normally draw 10,000 people to a crowded two-block area of downtown Washington.IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva said last week that some $8 trillion in fiscal stimulus being poured in by governments to stave off collapse was not likely to be enough. She is expected to argue this week for more debt relief for the poorest countries.Advanced economies hit hard The global economy contracted 0.7% in 2009 – previously the worst downturn since the 1930s – according to IMF data. In January, before the extent of the coronavirus outbreak both inside and outside China was known, the IMF had predicted that the global economy would grow 3.3% in 2020 as US.-China trade tensions were starting to ease, with 3.4% growth seen for 2021.Advanced economies now suffering the worst outbreaks of the virus will bear the brunt of the plunge in activity. The US. economy will contract 5.9% in 2020, with a rebound to 4.7% growth in 2021 under the Fund’s best-case scenario.Euro zone economies will contract by 7.5% in 2020, with hard-hit Italy seeing its GDP fall 9.1% and contractions of 8.0% in Spain, 7.0% in Germany and 7.2% in France, the Fund said. It predicted euro-area economies as a whole would match US. growth of 4.7% in 2021.China, where the coronavirus outbreak peaked in the first quarter and business activity is resuming with the help of large fiscal and monetary stimulus, will maintain positive growth of 1.2% in 2020, a reduction from 6% growth in the IMF’s January forecast. China’s economy is forecast to grow 9.2% in 2021, the IMF said.India’s 2020 fiscal-year growth also is expected to stay in positive territory, but Latin American economies, which are still experiencing growing coronavirus outbreaks, will see a contraction of 5.2%.The Fund called for central bank liquidity swap lines to be extended to more emerging market countries, which face a double problem of locked-down activity and tightening financial conditions caused by a massive outflow of funds to save-haven assets such as US. Treasuries.It said some countries may need to turn to temporary limits on capital outflows. The global economy is expected to shrink by 3.0% during 2020 in a stunning coronavirus-driven collapse of activity that will mark the steepest downturn since the Great Depression of the 1930s, the International Monetary Fund said on Tuesday.The IMF, in its 2020 World Economic Outlook, predicted a partial rebound in 2021, with the world economy growing at a 5.8% rate, but said its forecasts were marked by “extreme uncertainty” and that outcomes could be far worse, depending on the course of the pandemic.”This recovery in 2021 is only partial as the level of economic activity is projected to remain below the level we had projected for 2021, before the virus hit,” IMF chief economist Gita Gopinath said in a statement.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Werner expresses doubts over Liverpool, City switch amid United link

first_img Read Also: Man United beams search light on £145-a-week BellinghamMoreover, if City’s UEFA ban is upheld, Werner would face two years without Champions League football if he signed for them – something Leipzig are on course to achieve again for next season. United are seemingly on an upward trajectory, but much depends on whether they can secure a top four spot this season, or capitalise on City’s expulsion in their place. Speaking ahead of Leipzig’s Champions League second leg with Tottenham , Werner added: “So at this point of my career I’m asking myself: do I want to be part of a new team, to build up something new, or do I want to stay at my team and make something great?” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Timo Werner has admitted he is unsure whether he wants to join Liverpool or Man City over concerns whether he would be a first-team regular. The German striker has been linked with a move to both clubs this summer, with Man Utd are also interested in activating his £51million release clause. Timo Werner has revealed he could snub a transfer to stay at Leipzig Werner mentioned United when providing a latest update on his future, but also conceded the Red Devils were not the team they once were. And it seems the 24-year-old is now even considering the prospect of staying at Red Bull Leipzig. “At this time in professional soccer there are two different variations,” Werner said. “The first is to be part of a team like Liverpool or Manchester City . “They have a good working team. The teams have also great coaches. “But this is the question: do you want to go to that kind of team, because the situation is already that hard for each member and you want to be a part of it? That’s one point you have to look at. “The other side are teams which need some big changes, because they just won a few big titles, but they are not able to compete on the highest level anymore. Loading… “For me Manchester United is one of these teams.” Werner’s comments may come as a surprise to the interested parties, but perhaps he has a point. At present there is little chance of him dislodging either Roberto Firmino or Sergio Aguero from the front lines at Liverpool or City.

Walk-in immunization clinics offered in Ripley County

first_imgVersailles, In. — The Ripley County Health Department will be holding walk-in Immunization clinics from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the following dates:January 9, 2019January 16, 2019January 25, 2019January 28, 2019As long as flu viruses are circulating, it’s not too late to get vaccinated. Getting a flu vaccine can reduce illnesses, doctor visits and missed work and school due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone age 6 months and older get a flu vaccine each year. Dr. Box said that because infants under 6 months can’t be vaccinated, it’s important that anyone in a household where a young baby lives or visits get a flu shot to protect the child. Antibodies that provide protection develop in the body about two weeks after vaccination.Healthcare workers also are urged to get a flu vaccine to reduce their risk of transmitting illness to their patients.Influenza is a viral infection of the respiratory tract. It is spread by respiratory droplets released when infected people cough or sneeze nearby or when people touch surfaces or objects contaminated with those infectious respiratory droplets. People can also become infected by touching surfaces or objects contaminated with influenza viruses and then touching their eyes, mouth or nose.Although anyone can get the flu, some people are at higher risk of flu-related complications, such as pneumonia, hospitalization and death. High-risk individuals include pregnant women, young children (especially those too young to get vaccinated), people with chronic illnesses, people who are immunocompromised and the elderly. It is especially important for these individuals to be vaccinated each year.The Health Department currently accepts the following insurance companies:Group & Pension Administrators (GPA)Indiana MedicaidMD Wise Hoosier HealthwiseMD Wise Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP)MD Wise Hoosier Care ConnectMD Wise Exchange MarketplaceMDWise Alliance Health Plan /Total Health/IU Medical GroupAnthem Hoosier HealthwiseHoosier Alliance Health Plan (MD WISE)Advantage by Managed Health ServiceSoutheastern Indiana Health Organization (SIHO)Advantage Health SolutionsUnified Group ServicesMedicare A& BBlue Cross & Blue Shield of IndianaSagamore Health NetworkCignaTricare North RegionLocal 135 Health Benefit FundCommunity Insurance CompanyBlue Cross & Blue ShieldAnthem Insurance CompaniesAnthem Health Plans of KentuckyAnthem Blue Cross & Blue ShieldIf you are uninsured or underinsured vaccinations can be provided at no cost to you.  For more information please call 812-689-0506.last_img read more
