Overview of Turkey’s workforce

Turkey is known as one of the newly industrialized countries in the world. Due to its strategic location between Asia, Europe and the MENA economic zone, it welcomes thousands of investors and foreign professionals that want to find a job there.

Business investors can establish a solid presence here and take advantage of the leading industries of textile, construction, transportation, manufacturing and more. Companies can have an outstanding workforce in this place given that it has many young professionals and expatriates.

In this regard, to achieve efficiency in your business you must be able to handle your workforce efficiently in Turkey. To do this, you must learn about the local regulations and law to ensure total compliance with employment contracts and your HR management.

Turkey’s employment law

Ensuring compliance with Turkey’s Labor Law is crucial for achieving smooth operations. You must follow the provisions and guidelines established in the law to avoid facing complaints with your employees and non-compliance penalties.

Some of the most relevant aspects of Turkey’s Labor Law are the following:

  • Working week in Turkey is from Monday to Friday. Daily working hours are from 8am to 6pm. Weekly holiday days are Saturday and Sunday
  • Lunch breaks are usually one-hour long
  • Employees can work a maximum of 45 hours per week.
  • Employees are entitled to a 14-day paid annual leave
  • Female workers are entitled to an eight weeks maternity leave before delivery and eight weeks after delivery
  • Male employees are entitled to a five-day paternity leave
  • Regarding sick leave, employees can receive paid sick leave by government disability programs since employers are not obligated to provide it

Employment contracts in Turkey

Hiring employees in Turkey can be challenging due to the employment contracts that the employer must provide. This is because there are several types of employment contracts and each one will depend on the nature of work.

A regular employee typically will receive an open-ended employment contract, which means that it will have an indefinite period. Therefore, the employment contract should have a start date but it does not necessarily has to specify an end date or duration.

Regarding termination of an employment contract, the employer should notify the leave through the SSI/SGK website. This process is known as the “deregistration of leavers”.

As you can see, there are several crucial aspects regarding the employment contract, so your HR management should know how to handle them with efficiency. PEO Middle East can assist you with all of these aspects so you don’t have to worry about anything.
