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.
