Abstract
Indonesia is a maritime country where maritime itself becomes an important sector in improving the economy. This expectation needs to be balanced with the protection of the state to every business actor either corporation or to the workers so that their rights and obligations are guaranteed. One of the protections from the state is to provide guidance on Human Rights Due Diligence to companies engaged in fisheries sector. It has very important role in the fishery industry and occupies strategic and important function to guarantee the rights of workers to avoid human rights violations as occurred in the Benjina case where there was forced labor and human trafficking as an evidence of exploitation of workers. Therefore, it is the obligation of the companies to conduct Human Rights Due Diligence to ensure that no modern exploitation and slavery takes place. However, not all sectors of the fishery industry are fully concerned and realize this. This research aims to provide an overview of the legal policy of the regulation of Human Rights Due Diligence and its practice for companies in the fisheries sector using the method of normative-empirical law research so that this study is expected to provide a broader discourse that the protection of human rights is not only a state obligation but also corporations.
