Abstract

Nobody can deny the close relationship between law and justice. As such, the law seems to be the recognised mechanism or tool in implementing justice in a society. Thus, justice to some is an inherent component of the law and not separate or distinct from it. Law as the legal rules which justice is administered are themselves the product of the state, and in Malaysia, they will be the product of the government of the day. These rules would have gone through the necessary procedures, which include drafting, debating in both Houses of the Parliament and given the Royal Assent by the Yang Di Pertuan Agong before being gazetted. In this context, based on existing literature, this article will be looking at whether the law in its approach and drafting has successfully implemented justice in society, especially on the employees and elderly in Malaysia.
