Abstract
This research explores the issue regarding the response of several stakeholders towards the establishment of domestic worker’s protection law. These stakeholders involve some communities (referring to people who hire domestic workers, domestic workers agency (including the domestic workers itself), government, and Family Welfare Movement (Pemberdayaan dan Kesejahteraan Keluarga or PKK) of Gorontalo City. The protection law is established based on the Academic Draft and Policy Briefs. Furthermore, these drafts are the results of the previous Applied Product Research. This empirical legal research is aimed at identifying and examining the participation of the abovementioned stakeholders in developing domestic worker’s law based on Gorontalo local culture. This research was conducted by identifying, systemizing, and synchronizing norms and the law of society and related policies regarding the protection of domestic workers which have been established in Academic Draft and Policy Briefs. The data were collected by gathering the responses from all stakeholders, particularly the Family Welfare Movement of Gorontalo City as the partner of the research. These responses were from survey, interview, and focus group discussion. The results reveal that the implementation of Ministry of Manpower No. 2 of 2015 considering Protection of Domestic Workers is prevention and repressive programs. The prevention consists of developing a partnership with Family Welfare Movement of Gorontalo City as the mediator between the family as the one who hires domestic workers and the agency. Other programs included are counseling, empowerment, and workshops. It is expected that the repressive programs will be implemented immediately after the prevention; government and non-government organizations are responsible for the conduct of the programs. The programs include the establishment of working groups on women and children’s protection and other domestic workers communities. This is because women, children, and domestic workers dominate the number of the casualties of violation, discrimination, and exploitation. Keywords: Protection Law; Domestic Workers; Local Culture.
