Detiktoday.com – Chairman of the Indonesian Parliament Dr. (H.C.) Puan Maharani urged the government to collaborate with the community, especially labor groups, in discussing the derivative rules of the Omnibus Law on the Job Creation Act. According to Puan, this must be done to make detailed rules that are clear and acceptable to all parties.
“We encourage the government to collaborate with various groups of workers to be involved in discussing the derivative regulations of the Job Creation Law. Employee involvement is needed to detail the Job Creation Law, “said Puan, Thursday (8/10/2020).
Puan emphasized that the Indonesian Parliament will oversee to ensure that the derivative regulations of the Job Creation Law provide fair benefits for all parties. Derivative rules that must be discussed with workers include wages, job loss benefits, foreign workers, and work relations and working hours. “The DPR RI will oversee to ensure that the derivative regulations of the Job Creation Law provide fair benefits for all,” said Puan.
The DPR RI involved public participation in the discussion of the Work Creation Bill until it was passed into law on October 5, 2020. The discussion was carried out transparently and openly, and could be witnessed by the public through a live broadcast on the DPR RI website.
To accommodate the aspirations of workers’ groups, said Puan, the Indonesian Parliament formed a Formulating Team with a group of workers who felt that the government had not yet accommodated them. “The Job Creation Law is not only aimed at attracting investment and increasing Indonesia’s competitiveness, but also at expanding good employment opportunities,” he said.
The first woman who became the Chair of the Indonesian Parliament emphasized that the Indonesian Parliament would oversee the implementation of the Job Creation Law so that it would still prioritize the interests of the people. If the law is deemed incomplete, then as a legal state there is room for improvement of the law through a mechanism in accordance with the provisions of the statutory regulations.
“The DPR, through its supervisory function, will continue to evaluate when the law is implemented and will ensure that the law is implemented for the national interest and the interests of the Indonesian people,” concluded Puan.
