Abstract

Omnibus law, which later in the form of legislation is expected to be simple, integrated, harmonious and not contradictory. This idea is a legal "fast road" effort to address Indonesia's "hyper legislation" and overlapping legislation. As for the urgency of omnibus law to create quality jobs; boost investment; and improve the welfare of workers. This research study method uses a qualitative descriptive approach, with data collection techniques through library documentation, newspapers and magazines. Omnibus Law is an early instrument that provides certainty and convenience for the business sector. That certainty and convenience is for not only large entrepreneurs, but also micro, small and medium enterprises (SMEs) therefore called Omnibus Law Cipta Kerja. Omnibus law is made one of them by considering the performance of investments in the past that have been colored by investment. The investment was triggered by overlapping regulations as well as sectorial egos between ministries, governors, regents or mayors. To that end, there is no other way that there should be innovation and a system that supports the government slashing all regulations that impede investment. Omnibus law is still required input from various parties and socialization in order to have similar perceptions considering omnibus law is a new policy in Indonesia.
