Work-from-Home Order for Civil Servants Extended to 4 June
Date 29 Mei 2020
The Government has announced it extends the work-from-home order for civil servants to 4 June 2020.
The work-from-home order is based on Circular of Minister of State Apparatus Empowerment and Bureaucratic Reforms Number 57 of 2020 issued on 28 May 2020.
The work-from-home order will be further evaluated should the need arise.
According to the new circular, Personnel Supervisor Officer (PPK) at government institutions should ensure that the adjustment of the work system at government institutions does not reduce the quality of public service.
The extension of work-from-home order is also based on President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo’s directives to establish the ‘new normal’ protocols that support work productivity.
Regarding the ‘new normal’ protocols, the Government said it will continue to prioritize the people’s health and safety.
For the record, the new circular takes into account Presidential Decree Number 11 of 2020 on Declaration of Public Health Emergency due to the Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and Presidential Decree Number 12 of 2020 on Declaration of Non-Natural Disaster of COVID-19 as National Disaster.
