Date filed 17 September 2012
Current status Concluded
Issue Alleged human rights violations in Indonesia
Summary of the case In September 2012 the German NCP received a request for review from an Indonesian citizen alleging that a German multinational enterprise had breached the human rights, and employment and industrial relations provisions of the Guidelines in Indonesia. The individual claimed that his human rights had been violated during the company's corporate restructuring. During the restructuring the company had asked the individual to sign a settlement agreement as well as new employment agreement. The individual stated that the clauses of the agreements violated the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the ILO Discrimination (Employment and Occupation) Convention, 1958 (No. 111), the Constitution of Indonesia, and Indonesian labour law.
Developments/Outcome On 7 December 2013, after having evaluated the specific instance in conjunction with several Federal Ministries, the NCP concluded that there had been no indication that the company had breached the Guidelines and that neither the settlement agreement or the new employment agreement violated human rights or rules of non-discrimination.
