The Politics of Law in Prohibiting Physical Violence for Domestic Workers in the Largest Economy in Southeast Asia
Physical violence from employers is a common thing for domestic helpers, even though the right to work and decent livelihood is the right of every human being. The politics of law of prohibiting physical violence for domestic workers in Indonesia is still very weak eventhough it has strong correlation to acces to justice. This study uses a normative juridical method with an analytical descriptive approach and a case through secondary data. The results show that physical violence against domestic workers had not yet obtained a strict, consistent and coherent arrangement in terms of the the politics of law of conventions, constitutions and regulations so that access to justice for domestic workers who experienced physical violence is difficult to obtain.
