Can a retired employee continue to work in the same workplace?

An insurance holder meeting the conditions of Social Security Legislation qualifies for retirement. Within that perspective, insurance holder qualified for retirement can terminate his employment contract and receive his severance pay. To benefit from that right, the employee should apply to the affiliated Directorate of Social Security and receive a written statement confirming that he qualifies for retirement and entitled to severance pay.

There are no legal restrictions on a retiree’s working in another workplace.  If they do not want their pension to be cut off, they can pay social security support contribution while working. On the other hand, continuing in the same workplace after retirement is not a legal right. For that to happen, mutual agreement of both employee and employer is required. In other words, the employer is not obliged to rehire a retired employee. Only with mutual agreement, the retiree can continue to work in the same workplace.
