Abstract: A rapidly growing economy and a primary geopolitical actor in Eurasia, Turkey has attracted record levels of international capital and workforce since its recognition as a membership candidate to the European Union in 1999. This article presents an English-language recap of the first two chapters of Turkish labour law - an increasingly needed legislative piece for non-Turkish corporations and people interested in doing business or working in Turkey.

Keywords: Turkish labour law; Turkey; worker rights; employment contracts; developing countries; employee rights.
