In this complex information age, especially the automatic processing of personal data may cause problems as regard to fundamental rights and freedoms of individuals, and in particular their right to privacy.
Turkey signed the "EU Data Protection Directive 95/46, but has not yet ratified it and there wasn't any specific data protection law until recently. However, the Government proposal, "LAW ON THE PROTECTION OF PERSONAL DATA" has been approved by the General Assembly and expected to be issued in Official Journal in a short while.
Many of the provisions will come into effect after six months of the issuance of the law, and companies will have a preparation period.
Protection of personal data covers a very wide area, but as a result of our field of business we will try to approach the new provisions from the point of labor and social security legislation, human resources and payroll outsourcing, Also the processing and transferring of personal data in-country or abroad will be our other main concern.
