The new rules will require an employer to have the written permission of the Director for the Control of Exploitation of Foreign Labor. This permission will only be granted where the employer submits a business license for a business that owns karaoke facilities, a valid plan for the exploitation of the foreign labor in question, the payment of any compensation fees, a copy of an insurance policy, and a work contract.
The maximum period of time a permit will be granted for is six months and it cannot be renewed.
For every foreign karaoke specialist employed, the employer is under an obligation to employ five Indonesian karaoke specialists.
Perhaps this does not interest any of my loyal readers as you are probably not big karaoke fans! But if you are then at least now you will have a discussion starter next time you are enjoying the talents of either a foreign or Indonesian karaoke specialist!
