Fixed term employment contracts according to Turkish legislation.
Employment contracts with a fixed term are a valuable instrument with respect to labor laws in many countries. Over time, many firms in Turkey have begun using this type of employment contract as a way to circumvent the grant of various legal rights that come with indefinite term contracts. Issues with the application of regulation persist despite the numerous court decisions and attempts to stop the usage of fixed term contracts to serve purposes other than those that they are intended to serve.
Due to the problems mentioned above, firms that have an actual need for fixed term contracts to be applied to personnel often face problems resulting from the incorrect interpretation of the situation.
When the topic is observed from the perspective of the employer; just as it is frequently experienced in the Istanbul Courts, even if the will of the employer and employee is known and clear, issues can arise at the end or renewal of a fixed term contract. From time to time the personnel receives incorrect information from individuals in their surroundings who are not very knowledgeable and give them false information. Additionally, regardless of the good intentions of the employer, problems resulting from the incorrect preparation of the contract can lead to disagreements.
