Abstract

The Government of the Republic of Indonesia has issued policies to provide legal protection for women workers who are breastfeeding. The policies issued in the context of fulfilling the rights of women workers and the rights of children based on the philosophy that the fulfillment of the necessities of life is a human right and constitutional right for every Indonesian citizen. Based on this conception, the results of this study examine government policies in providing legal protection for women workers to breastfeed their children. This is a normative legal research with the three approaches, namely statute, concepts, and analysis. The data used are secondary data collected through a literature study, then analyzed qualitatively. The results of this study indicate that the policies of women workers who are breastfeeding in relation to the fulfillment of children's rights have not provided strong and firm legal protection for women workers who are breastfeeding and also for breastfed children.
