Employment & Benefits
We have an outstanding record in representing both individuals and corporations in employment matters, and in general advisory work on the complex rules governing the employment of expatriates in Indonesia. On the litigation front, we are frequently called upon to advise on cases involving internal fraud and embezzlement, and on the remedies available to employers that find themselves affected by such acts. In addition, we offer expert advice on the employment implications of mergers, acquisitions and amalgamations, and the rights and benefits available to employees upon termination.
Our recent significant representations in this practice area include advising a multinational company in its attempt to restrain the malicious dissemination over the internet of slanderous and offensive material about the company and its officers by a disgruntled former senior employee, representing the Indonesian subsidiary of a Netherlands-based ICT services supplier in a dispute with its former president director over allegations of fraud and unlawful self-enrichment, and advising a well-known European company with significant operations in Asia in its pursuit of a number of senior employees accused of abusing their positions for purposes of self-enrichment.
