Legal Protection on Local Employee Rights Related with Foreign Mission Immunity in Indonesia

Sefriani
Abstract—On 2013, Indonesian court had pronounced two progressive sentences which were distinct to identical sentences on previous years. Both sentences declared that Brazilian Embassy and USA consulate were culpable upon deposing one of their local employee without paying severance money as regulated by Indonesian Labor Laws. The court had disposed the embassy and the consulate’s immunity claim against any Indonesian legal proceedings. Although those sentences were lacking of international law argument, they had serious concern on Human Rights protection enforcement on local employee who possesses weaker standing than the employer. They were also in tune with European court sentences which have discarded absolute immunity.

Index Terms—Immunity and local employee.
