PREMIUMEmployers seek to defend jobs law amid public outcry


first_imgForgot Password ? Google Topics : Businesspeople have sought to defend the recently passed Job Creation Law days after 11 ministers did so, claiming that the regulation will uphold labor rights and will address high labor costs and productivity issues.Indonesian Employer Association (Apindo) chair Hariyadi Sukamdani said on Friday that issues preventing businesses from employing more people formed the background of the drafting and deliberation of the omnibus law. He said the legislation aimed to redress a long-term decline in employment.“In the span of 17 years since Law No. 13/2003 on labor was passed, a significant decline in employment has taken place,” he said in a virtual discussion held by the association. “This is in contrast to the growth of our workforce, which has increased by more than 2 million people every year.”From February 2019 to February of this year, 1.73 million In… Facebook Linkedin Log in with your social account LOG INDon’t have an account?

European Commission delves deeper into pension transfer rights


first_imgThe European Commission, as part of its drive to allow European Union workers to move freely within the union, has asked the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) for advice and information on the transferability of supplementary pension rights. Michel Servoz, director-general of the Commission’s employment, social affairs and inclusion directorate, wrote to EIOPA chair Gabriel Bernardino to find out about the current state of affairs for transfers of acquired supplementary pension rights between occupational pension schemes in different member states.The information was to cover transfers within the country, as well as cross-border transfers, he said, suggesting EIOPA could flag good practices related to transfers. EIOPA was also asked for quantitative data on transfers of pension assets within the countries and across borders, if available.  In addition to this, Servoz asked the authority to pinpoint the main obstacles that were affecting – or preventing – transfers, both within countries and across borders. In his letter, Servoz said the Commission, the European Parliament and the Council had been actively trying to ease worker mobility in the EU.A key step in this is the “Directive on minimum requirements for enhancing worker mobility by improving the acquisition and preservation of supplementary pension rights”, he said. The directive was adopted by the European Parliament and the Council two months ago, he said, adding that it did not involve minimum requirements on the transferability of these pension rights. “Nevertheless, pension transferability remains an important aspect of worker mobility, and member states are encouraged to improve the transferability of vested pension rights,” he said. Servoz welcomed EIOPA’s planned report on good practices on portability of occupational pension rights, and his request for advice on the topic was within the scope of that work, he said. “The objective is to inform possible future debates on the transferability of supplementary pension rights,” he said.Servoz said the Commission wanted EIOPA’s findings by the middle of 2015.last_img read more


Mandate roundup: Banco di Napoli, National LGPS Framework


first_imgThe pension fund for Italy’s Banco di Napoli is tendering two €45m equity mandates, targeting managers of Asia-Pacific and US stocks.The €693m fund said it was looking to award four contracts in total – two covering the defined benefit section of fund, and two covering its defined contribution scheme.All four contracts will run for three years, according to Banco di Napoli, which added that managers would be allowed to invest only in listed equities in the two selected markets.For the sake of liquidity management, however, the pension fund will allow temporary exposure to money market funds denominated in euros. Interested managers have until 4 April to respond to the request for proposal published on the Banco di Napoli fund’s website.In other news, the UK National Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) Framework has tendered a framework agreement covering advice for asset pooling, as well as actuarial advice.The initiative, supported by seven funds including the administering authority behind Norfolk Pension Fund, is split into four distinct lots covering actuarial services, benefits consultancy, provision of governance consultancy and distinct pieces of pensions-related project work.The last lot allows for the tendering of advice regarding the creation of asset pools, being launched by the LGPS in the wake of the UK government’s attempts to increase scale within the sector in England and Wales.The lot would also allow funds across the UK to appoint specialists able to help them comply with the new regulatory requirements imposed by the Pensions Regulator.The four-year mandate, which could run for up to seven years, could be worth up to £350m (€448m) in payments to third parties.Interested parties have until 11 April to apply (the deadline was later extended to 15 April in connection with an amendment of the short description in the contract notice – a formal matter).last_img read more

Bayern visit slumping Schalke in German Cup after banner shame


first_imgAfter comprehensive wins in Europe and the Bundesliga over the past week, Bayern Munich will switch their attention to the German Cup on Tuesday against an out-of-sorts Schalke in the quarter-finals. Bayern Munich are unbeaten in 13 games in all competitions Bayern marked themselves out as Champions League title contenders with a 3-0 rout of Chelsea in London last week, backing it up in a 6-0 win at Hoffenheim despite the loss of star forward Robert Lewandowski to injury. Philippe Coutinho scored twice and Thomas Mueller contributed two assists in the Pole’s absence, but the game was overshadowed by a banner attacking Hoffenheim’s billionaire investor Dietmar Hopp. It was the latest in a series of insults directed towards Hopp, an unpopular figure among German football fans for circumventing the league’s traditional fan-ownership model to invest vast sums in the village club. Bayern have founded an “anti-hate” committee which will work closely with the police in Mannheim over the offensive banner unfurled at Hoffenheim’s stadium. Club chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said the culprits “must of course expect to be punished by Bayern Munich. We don’t want to see this hateful face of FC Bayern any more.” “We can’t go back to business as usual,” he added. He said the committee would help the police identify those responsible “and also look at how we deal with this issue in the future.” Bayern are heavy favourites to overcome a Schalke side whose promising early-season form has tailed off dramatically, with just one win in their past nine league games. “It’s going to be a difficult game and the team know that going in. But we’ll take on the challenge,” said Schalke coach David Wagner. “We know we’re underdogs. Sometimes it works in your favour though, knowing that you simply never know what’s going to happen in any given game.” Bayern are unbeaten in 20 matches against Schalke in all competitions and thrashed the Royal Blues 5-0 in Munich at the end of January. In-form Bayer Leverkusen, fifth in the top flight, have qualified for the Europa League last 16 and are at home to Union Berlin on Wednesday, while Eintracht host Werder Bremen.
