How do we calculate overtime earnings on holidays ?

According to  Labor Law no 4857, working time is 45 hours maximum weekly. In case of exceeding a total of 45 hours a week (except cases where the principle of balancing is applied in accordance with Article 63) should be accepted as overtime. For an employee who works overtime, wage for each hour of overtime shall be remunerated at one and a half times the normal hourly rate.

On the other hand, employees shall be paid a full day’s wage for the national and public holidays on which they have not worked. If employees work instead during the holidays, they shall be paid an additional full day’s wage for each day worked. These renumerations and amounts constitute the lower limits and different renumerations can be determined in the labor contract on condition that they will not be lower than these minimum limits.
