Said Law had set forth forbidding private offices executing agency business for seeking jobs and employees and establishing the Institution of Providing Jobs and Employees in three years which could enable that this service would be executed by the government. Since the Institution could not be founded within three years, it was determined that law draft of the Institution would be reported to TBMM (Grand National Assembly of Turkey) through the Law with the date 1939 and the number 3612 in two years.
