Article 23 of the UDHR guarantees everyone “the right to work, to free employment, to just and favourable conditions of work and to protection against unemployment.”

The human right to work recognizes work as something to which each and every individual is entitled. The right to work means, first of all, the right to participate in the producing and servicing activities of human society and the right to participate in the benefits accrued through these joint activities to an extent that guarantees an adequate standard of living. The right to work thus ensures that nobody is excluded from the economic sphere.

Thus, Suhakam must uphold the rights entrenched under Part II, Article 5-13 of the Federal Constitution.
