Ministry of Manpower will Release Regulations for Partnership Schemes on "Ride-Hailing" Platforms

The regulations, which are targeted to come into effect in December 2024, regulate partnerships and profit sharing for online motorcycle taxi and motorcycle taxi drivers

The Ministry of Manpower (Kemenaker) announced that it will release new regulations governing partnerships and profit sharing for motorbike taxi and taxi drivers online in December 2024. This rule aims to provide legal certainty and improve driver welfare.

Minister of Manpower Ida Fauziyah said in the virtual DPR Commission IX Working Meeting that the signing and promulgation of this regulation will be carried out in December 2024. "We hope that this regulation can provide clarity regarding the rights and obligations of drivers and applicators," said Ida.

This new rule will cover eight important points, namely:

  1. Definition of labor outside the employment relationship in application-based services.
  2. Rights and obligations in agreements outside the employment relationship.
  3. The results taken by the applicator are like Gojek, Grab, Maxim, and inDrive.
  4. Working time and rest time.
  5. Social Security.
  6. Occupational Health and Safety.
  7. Well-being.
  8. Settlement of disputes between applicators and drivers.

The Ministry of Manpower has carried out partnership dialogues and Focus Group Discussions (FGD) with various driver and applicator trade unions to absorb aspirations and input since last year. The process of formulating these regulations also involves several related ministries, including the Ministry of Transportation and the Ministry of Communication and Information.

The next agenda is the absorption of aspirations which will be implemented until August, formulation and discussion draft from September to October, as well as harmonization of regulations with the Ministry of Law and Human Rights in November.

With this new regulation, it is hoped that it can provide better protection and welfare for motorbike taxi and taxi drivers online.
