Hubungan Pekerjaan di Indonesia: Perspektif Sejarah-Perundangan (Employment Relationship In Indonesia: A Legal-Historical Perspective)

Rumainur Rumainur, Kamal Halili Hassan


The purpose of this acticle is to discuss employment relationship in Indonesia, especially in the private sector, according to legal-historical perspectives. The problem of labour relations in Indonesia has existed before the declaration of independence on August 17, 1945. The methodology used is qualitative descriptive with a historical-regulatory perspective approach. The results of the study shows that during the early stages of the history of employment relations in Indonesia, the workers were socially and economically vulnerable if compared to employers, thus they need to be protected by law to fight for their rights. The protection of the law on the workers and the employers basically is premised on two principles - the basis of governmental law and on human rights. All of this was not available to the workers before Indonesia achieved independence. When Indonesia achieved independence, new labour legislation was introduced to give protection to the workers.
