Abstract

Legal Protection of Indonesian Nurses in Japan is legally binding protection provided by the State with the guidance of its regulations. Indonesian Nurses, as the subject of law, are the rights and obligations holder under the law. Their rights are to get legal protection with the regulations in force, while their obligations are to must fulfill requirements decided by the Japan Government (where they work). The research aims to focus on how to conduct an inventory of the regulations for the Indonesian Nurses legal protection and what efforts are needed by the Indonesian Government in addressing the problem of nurses who do not understand the legal protection rules. These research results show that the Indonesian nurse's legal protection is in the provisions of laws on civil protection; namely Indonesian Law, Japanese Law, and applicable International Law. It is done before their departure to Japan when they work in Japan, and after they return to Indonesia. The National Agency for Placement and Protection of Indonesian Migrant Workers as the representative of Government has the functions and duties to offer legal protection to Indonesian nurses, who are obliged to guide and control to the officer to be ideal and to better understand the rules of law on their protection that will lead to coordinate and informative efforts between officials and nurses. The Indonesian nurse's legal protection implementations have not met the expectations.
