Abstract: With its young and growing population known with its competence, Turkey has been a major destination for global and domestic capital investments since the early 2000s when the country's European Union prospects have become a practical reality. This article presents Turkish workers' (non-collective) rights in the areas of compensation, work hours and conditions, and seeking employment for domestic and international investors that do or plan to do business in this OECD economy.

Keywords: labour law; Law #4857; compensation; work hours; working conditions; employment; worker rights; Turkey.
