Complete THR Eid Rules 2023

Jakarta, CNN Indonesia —

The Minister of Manpower Ida Fauziyah requires employers to pay holiday allowances (THR) to workers or laborers no later than seven days before Idul Fitri 1444 Hijriah.

In addition, this year’s THR payments may not be paid in installments like the previous year. The reason is, Ida assesses that the economy has recovered and the company must pay THR in full.

The provision of this THR is stated in Circular Letter M/2HK.0400/III/2023 concerning the Implementation of Giving Religious THR in 2023 for Company Workers/Labourers.



“Religious THR must be paid no later than seven days before a religious holiday. This religious THR must be paid in full, cannot be paid in installments. I repeat, religious THR must be paid in full and cannot be in installments. I ask companies to comply with this regulation,” said Ida in press conference, Tuesday (28/3).

According to him, THR is needed by workers to meet their needs ahead of Eid, so if there are employers in installments or do not provide THR, the government will impose sanctions, ranging from mild to severe sanctions.

“This THR is intended to help meet the needs of workers/laborers and their families in welcoming religious holidays,” he said.

The following are the complete THR rules set by the government today:

1. THR is paid no later than H-7 Eid

The government requires companies to pay THR to workers or laborers no later than a week before the Eid celebration. This is intended so that workers can meet their needs ahead of the holidays due to rising prices of basic commodities.

2. Can’t be paid in installments

Unlike before during the pandemic period when payment of THR could be paid in installments, this year it must be paid in full. Ida assesses that the economy has started to recover so employers must provide full THR to workers or laborers.

3. Amount of THR

For the amount of THR, employers are required to give it to workers or laborers according to statutory regulations. For example, for workers who have worked for 12 months or more, they are given THR equal to one month’s salary.

Meanwhile, for workers whose working period is under 12 months, THR is still given according to a proportional calculation.

“For example, a worker whose salary is IDR 4 million per month and has only worked for six months, then the worker is entitled to THR by calculating six divided by 12 equals half and then multiplied by IDR 4 million. From this calculation, approximately the worker gets THR of IDR 2 million ,” Ida gave an example.

4. THR can be given greater than the government’s provisions

Ida allows companies to pay THR higher than the statutory provisions. The possibility of a higher THR payment is stated in the Minister of Manpower Regulation Number 6 of 2016.

“In this rule, it is stipulated that for companies that in their work agreements (PK), company regulations (PP), collective labor agreements (PKB), or customs that apply in the company have regulated the amount of THR which is in excess of statutory provisions, then the THR that is paid to the worker or laborer in accordance with the PK, PP, PKB, or the custom,” he added.

5. Employees who are entitled to THR

Ida emphasized that THR is given to workers or laborers both with permanent and contract status, namely PKWTT and PKWT. In addition, THR must also be given to workers or casual daily laborers who meet the requirements in accordance with laws and regulations.

The condition is that the working period reaches 12 months more or not, the value is given proportionally.

6. Sanctions for entrepreneurs who do not pay THR

The government stipulates sanctions for companies that are determined not to pay or repay THR in installments as stated in PP 36/2021. There are four sanctions imposed ranging from mild to severe, namely:

– Written warning sanction
– Limitation of business activities
– Temporary suspension or all means of production
– Suspension of business.
