Turkey: Short-time work allowance period extended again

Turkey

The period for the short-time work allowance was extended until 31 March 2021 following the 19 February 2021 publication of Presidential Decision No. 3556 in the Official Gazette.

In order to benefit from the wage subsidy for the extended period, employers must meet the conditions for short-time work as explained under our previous E-Alert article and must have applied for the short-time work allowance before 31 January 2021 (see this E-Alert article).
