This also makes investors more determined to invest their capital in the country, including providing certainty of welfare to workers.
The changes to Law (UU) Number 11 of 2020 through Law (UU) Number 6 of 2023 concerning Job Creation (UU Job Creation) were indeed carried out by the Government of the Republic of Indonesia (RI) to be able to continue to harmonize various kinds of legal regulations. existing invitations.
However, not only in order to harmonize various regulations, but it turns out that changes to the regulations related to Job Creation (Ciptaker) are also able to answer current legal needs, in order to continue to maintain the stability of the national economy, which is currently in dire need. the existence of a clear legal umbrella as a basis for policy making by the Government.
Regarding the existence of the new Job Creation Law, Member of Commission III of the House of Representatives of the Republic of Indonesia (DPR RI), Supriansa revealed that based on the Decision of the Constitutional Court (MK) Number 91/PUU-VIII/2020, the implementation of the Law (UU ) Number 11 of 2020, after the decision of the Constitutional Court occurred, of course this resulted in a condition where norms were ineffective.
Apart from that, the Constitutional Court’s decision regarding the status of the old Job Creation Law also created a condition of uncertainty regarding the implementation of Law Number 11 of 2020 and was able to give rise to disputes among business actors, workers and the public regarding economic law, the business world and investment. In response to all the chaos, Government Regulation in Lieu of Law (Perppu) Number 2 of 2022 was issued.
Of course, with the various conditions that have occurred, the urgent nature of the issuance of Perppu Number 2 of 2022 has been fulfilled and at the same time answered questions from several parties who asked about the critical situation referred to in the formation of the Perppu.
Then now, with Law Number 6 of 2023 as the legal basis which states that Perppu Number 2 of 2022 becomes a piece of legislation carried out by the DPR RI in order to avoid legal vacuums and provide updates on legal certainty, considering the validity period of the Presidential Decree. short, if it is not immediately approved by the DPR RI, then ratification will be carried out immediately.

Apart from that, it turns out that the existence of this new regulation in the economic world is also very much needed because it can help maintain national economic stability.

Likewise, the Deputy Minister of Manpower (Wamenaker RI) Afriansyah Noor also explained that now economic stability has been maintained optimally after the enactment of the new Job Creation Law by the Indonesian Government. How could it not be, because having clear rules creates stability regarding workers and how they are paid.
