As the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread across the world, the virus has become a primary concern for employers in Turkey.

The President of the Turkish Republic delivered a speech on March 18, 2020 where he stated that the government will furnish short-term working allowance due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and that the application process for short-term working allowance will be facilitated and shortened.

You can use this legal alert to receive cursory information about the short-term working allowance, but as the COVID-19 situation evolves, so too will the laws affecting employers. The information in this legal alert is presented as of March 24 2020; the high-level guidance in this document is not intended to be comprehensive legal advice.
