Such work shall not be considered overtime work or work at extra hours.

Compensatory work shall not exceed three hours daily, and must not exceed the maximum daily working time in any case.

Compensatory work shall not be carried out on holidays.

With the Law no:7226 Article 43, the below update was announced:

ARTICLE 43 - The phrase "two" in the first paragraph of Article 64 of the Labor Law dated 22/5/2003 and numbered 4857 has been changed to "four" and the following sentence has been added to the paragraph after the first sentence.

"The president is authorized to increase this period up to twice."
