Thus the results of the discovery were obtained. Specifically, the Criminal Code (KUHP) and Law Number 13 of 2006 Concerning the Protection of Witnesses and Victims regulate the protection given to people who have been the victims of criminal acts, especially in Article 5 paragraph (1), Law No. 23 of 2004 concerning the Elimination of Domestic Violence. In addition, obtaining guarantees or legal compensation for losses incurred by victims constitutes protection, including Counseling, legal services, restitution and compensation, and legal aid. In addition, every domestic worker chooses the rights regulated in Ministerial Regulation No. 2 of 2015, explaining the rights of domestic workers about the Protection of Domestic Workers, the Criminal Code (KUHP). Regarding the obstacles that arise in this case, namely the absence of laws governing the remuneration of domestic workers.
