Top 5 questions within 20 minutes to keep up to date with the latest COVID-19 vaccination campaign in Indonesia and key considerations for employers and employees.

With COVID-19 vaccination drives at the early rollout stage across Southeast Asia, we take this opportunity to look more closely at some of the main questions, concerns and legal issues on the minds of employers and employees during these uncertain times in this podcast series.

Today, in the third in our series, Vinay Ahuja (Partner) and Marion Carles Salmon (Head of Regional Employment and Labor Practice), outline the rights and obligations of employers and employees when it comes to COVID-19 vaccination in Indonesia. Our experts discuss the country vaccination program and any relevant rules and compliance issues to take note of.

Top 5 Questions Discussed
  1. Can employers require their employees to be vaccinated?
  2. Is information concerning an employee’s vaccination considered “health information” or “sensitive data” under a data protection law?
  3. If so, is such personal data subject to any restrictions on the collection and processing of “sensitive personal data”?
  4. If vaccinations are compulsory, will employees be entitled to reimbursement for the costs of vaccination?
  5. Can employers terminate employees who refuse to be vaccinated?
