Legal, financial and administrative considerations for an employment insurance system in Indonesia

The present report brings together additional research and findings concerning the potential introduction of employment insurance in Indonesia. It provides background and context to the ongoing dialogue on the subject as well as some preliminary insights on what could be achievable.

Indonesia has been considering the introduction of an employment insurance scheme and to this end has requested ILO support in the planning and feasibility stages, as well as in developing a national consensus around possible parameters. In response to this request, the ILO began providing technical assistance in early 2018 with the objective of assisting Indonesia to evaluate the implications and feasibility of introducing unemployment benefits.
