Abstract

This study discusses the equality before the law for male and female worker at PTPN III. Ideally, human relation must be established without discrimination. This study focuses on finding out the causes of why PTPN III did not apply equality before the law to male and female workers. This is a normative legal research using a normative juridical method. There is an imbalance of the human relation among the workers since the company does not apply the principle of equality before the law. In the context of remuneration, the provisions of Article 44 Paragraph (1) and (4) of the Collective Labor Agreement for the year of 2016-2017 between PTPN III and the Worker Union of PTPN III (CLA) contain a discrimination against women workers. Legal protection for women workers from discrimination has been regulated in the 1945 Constitution, various laws and regulations, and ILO conventions. In conclusion, discrimination of workers is contrary to the human rights. The CLA should immediately be revised to achieve the equality before the law for male and female workers
