Indonesia: Commentary on the labour cluster of the Omnibus Bill on Job Creation (Ruu Cipta Kerja)

Index Number: ASA 21/2879/2020

The rights to participate in public affairs, freedom of expression, the right to information, as well as the right to just and favorable conditions at work, are protected by international law. Since all human rights are interdependent, the protection of these rights is essential to the protection of other human rights. The Government of Indonesia is undergoing a process of producing an Omnibus Bill on Job Creation, which, Amnesty International believes, will weaken protection of existing workers’ rights. Amnesty International is concerned that the procedure and substance of the Omnibus Bill are not in keeping with to Indonesia’s human rights obligations under international human rights law.
