JAKARTADAILY.ID - Ahead of 2022 Eid al-Fitr, the Ministry of Manpower has received 2,114 reports concerning problematic disbursement of Eid holiday bonus or THR for the period of April 8 to 20, 2022.

The reports, which consist of 1,556 online consultations and 558 online complaints, have been submitted through the ministry's THR Command Post (Posko) of 2022.

The ministry's Head of Public Relations Bureau, Chairul Fadhly Harahap, said that those reports have various complaints, including, among others, money calculations that are not by the provisions and unpaid holiday bonuses.

"To date, the number of consultations and complaints submitted to the 2022 THR Command Post is 2,114 reports," Chairul said in Jakarta on Thursday, April 21, 2022.

Chairul ensured that his team would take action towards the public consultations and complaints.

The reports related to consultations will be handled directly by the Industrial Relations Mediator through the consultation column on the website

Later, the reports will be continued with the Labor Inspectorate conducting inspections on the company to ensure that the holiday bonuses are paid according to the provisions.

"Of course, the complaints will be processed after the holiday bonus payment deadline. The Ministry of Manpower's labor inspectors will cooperate with the regional labor inspectors," said Chairul.

Chairul said that the THR Command Post comes as the government effort to facilitate the rights of workers and laborers so that they can receive their holiday bonuses according to the applicable regulations.

The THR Command Post can be accessed virtually by workers, laborers, and entrepreneurs from April 8 to May 8, 2022, during working hours (08:00 a.m. to 03:00 p.m. Western Indonesian Time) via

Previously, the President of the Confederation of Indonesian Trade Unions (KSPI), Said Iqbal, announced the support for the ministry's decision to require companies to pay the 2022 holiday bonuses in full to their employees.

"The THR paid in 100 percent by employers is appropriate, and [KSPI] fully supports the action of the Minister of Manpower," he said.
