Jakarta Employers must provide discretion to their employees to apply for additional leave days during the Eid al-Fitr holidays, especially to staff members traveling to their hometowns during the exodus, according to a Manpower Ministry’s official.

“It is projected that millions of residents will travel to their hometowns this year. We hope that employers will give discretion to their employees that will return to their hometowns to apply for additional leave days to travel outside the peak period,” the ministry’s Secretary General, Anwar Sanusi, noted in the ministry statement here on Saturday.

While the government has declared April 29 and May 4, 5, and 6, as collective leave days to complement the Eid al-Fitr holiday on May 2-3, the government also projected the peak exodus period to be on April 28-30, he remarked.
