Facts about hiring in turkey
The Inside Track
Turkey has four types of employment contracts: contracts for temporary and permanent work, contracts for definite and indefinite periods, contracts for part-time and full-time work and finally, contracts for work-on-call.
Under the Turkish Labor Law, the maximum regular working hours are 45 hours per week. In principle, 45 hours should be split equally among the working days.
Employees are entitled to paid annual leave, provided that they have worked for at least one year, including the probationary period. Paid time off is dependent on the number of years of service: Years 1-5: 14 working days. More than 5 years but less than 15: 20 working days.
Turkish legislation guarantees a total of 16 weeks of paid maternity leave; 8 weeks before and 8 weeks after birth. In cases of multiple pregnancies (twins or more), the maternity leave is extended to a total of 18 weeks.
All employees are entitled to a maximum of one week of paid sick leave upon production of a medical report. Sick leave might be extended.
