The minimum salaries in Indonesia are called the UMP Indonesia and the UMK Bali.
Continue here to learn about the hefty penalties for employers who pay less than the legally required minimum wage.
UMP stands for “Upah Minimum Provinsi” or Provincial Minimum Wage. Indonesia has 34 provinces. A province is the highest level of the local government divisions in Indonesia. Each province sets their own UMP or minimum wage.
UMK stands for “Upah Minimum Kabupaten/Kota” or Regency/City Minimum Wage. Every province has its own regencies for which Bali has nine.
Normally the UMP and UMK is calculated through a formula using economic growth, inflation and index variables. Using this formula the increase in wages for 2023 would have been 13%. Instead, the government has capped the maximum increase in minimum wage to 10%.
The province with the highest increase in minimum wage is West Sumatra with an increase of 9.15%. The province with the lowest increase in minimum salary in Indonesia is West Papua with an increase of 2.56% compared to 2022.

Ultimately, the minimum wage of the regencies (Denpasar, Tabanan …) should be equal or higher than the minimum wage of the province (Bali).
The minimum wage is based on 40 hours of work per week and can either be;
- 7 hours per day and 40 hours per week for 6 days of work per week.
- 8 hours per day and 40 hours per week for 5 days of work per week.

She has not signed any agreement with them but has worked hard in this time .

Your daughter can log a complaint with Kementerian Ketenagakerjaan (Ministry of Manpower). If your daughter is not Indonesian then she will need a work permit before considering logging a complaint with the Ministry of Manpower.
What is the standard yearly pay increase given per year by employers? I know there is no set standard by law but what is the average increase if any?
When there are several levels of salary, does one have to increase those salaries which are paid a much higher level than the basic wage by 8.51% ?
No, the basic salary is only for minimum wage. How much you increase the salary of staff is the choice if the employer.
Dr Herlinda Siaahan of Konderatu does not pay staff leaving many families in a constant state of poverty.
Hello, Is this considering 13 salarys? Thanks
Yes it is. You need to pay a 13th month salary to employees. This is called THR or “Tunjangan Hari Raya” or “Religious Holiday Allowance”. This is a 1 month salary bonus legally required by law and is to be paid on a major religious holiday. For Muslims this is for example at Idul Fitri (the end of Ramadan). For Balinese Hindu this will be paid at Galungan (there are 2 Galungan per year so you can either pay 50/50 or choose one Galungan per year to pay 100%). If an employee has worked less than 12 months then the THR is to be paid pro-rata.
How much do I pay my local staff for cleaning 3 hours per day 5 days per week

Are domestic, household ,gardeners and security classified under standard minimum wage if working for an individual .. In a villa.. Not a business.
Or are they considered casual labor with no government regulations
I believe house keepers are not included in above minimum rates.
