Began with the labor law comparison between Indonesia and Cambodia as well as Vietnam, this case-study based on garment & textile industries involved stakeholder analysis referred to their in-depth interview with Government, Employer, Employee, and Labor Union.

Questions and suggestions filled the atmosphere. At the end of their presentation, USAID team sent out their recommendations in which could be applied in labor-intensive institutions. Of course, the implementation of those recommendations would depend on the existed policy of the institution itself.

Interesting! One of the recommendations that divided the audiences was “To decrease the length of sick leave to a maximum of six months; 100 percent wages paid for the first month, 60 percent for second and third month, 50 percent for fourth and sixth month”. How about your institution? Any chance to implement that recommendation?
