Abstract: The construction industry is one of the major industries contributing to the growth of Malaysia’s gross domestic product (GDP). Therefore, in order to overcome the shortage of local workers, Malaysia is highly dependent on the Indonesian workers to work in the construction industry. The aim of this paper is to identify the job specification and job description of the Indonesian workers in the Malaysian construction industry. A round-table discussion was carried out to obtain the valuable information. The results indicated that the most important job specification for each Indonesian worker who works in the construction industry is the need to have a Construction Personnel Card. In addition, a skilled Indonesian worker is needed to be certified and awarded a Foreign Workers Certificate (PKPA). However, in terms of job description, Indonesian workers are regulated by several sets of policies and laws.
