According to the Article 30 of Law Number 4857; in determining the liability to employ disabled personnel and in determining the number of disabled personnel to employ in the case of the existance of such liability;

  • When calculating the number of personnel employed within the same province, all of the employed workers are taken into consideration, regardless of their employement being definite or indefinite term.
  • In case that, some employees amongst the personnel are employed for part time work, the work period of these personnel working with part time contract, are changed into full time period.
  • The sum of number of days that, the part-time workers are paid in the relavant month, is divided by 30 and this amount is added to the number of full-time workers. In case this amount, which is found after being divided by 30, is a fractional number, the fractions upto the half are not considered, but the halves and the fractions above the halves are rounded off to a whole number.
