Over the last two decades the Indonesian government has formulated several pieces of legislation intended to provide better protection for workers. These laws include employment protection programs and regulations over industrial relations, thus establishing firme standards of employment.With the enactment of these laws, it might seem that labaour is now considered the most important element in the development process, for the legislation aims to secure and protect the rights of workers. Importantly, with these laws the government has redefined security and protection such that it now embraces workers in the informalsectorof the economy. But do these policies meet international welfare standards? This paper describes labour regulations to protect workers, right and secure decent working conditions, assessing the strenghts and weaknesses of the regulatory and policy measures taken to enhance worker welfare.
