Abstract

Work is an application of the human beings’ responsibility in existing. The type of work may be chosen
freely whether it is within the country or abroad. This is a normative law research which is supported by
empirical study. The normative law study is used to analyze the constitutional regulations regarding the
health rights of the Indonesian migrant workers. Meanwhile, the empiric law study is used to analyze the
implementation of the regulations. The health right implementation of the Indonesian migrant workers in
Malaysia is applies through health insurances based on the sosco regulations. The payment of the health
rights for the Indonesian migrant workers is the responsibility of the employer. The research results show
that in the aspect of health, the work agreements do not go according to the contract. The health security
of the Indonesian migrant workers in Malaysia is still not effective as it only covers accidents within the
working hours.
