What is Severance Pay?
The Severance Pay is the most important payment for workers who work under the Turkish Labor Law. Workers are entitled to severance pay upon completing 1 year under the same employer.
Severance pay, as regulated in Article 14 of the Abolished Labor Law No. 1475, is calculated as monthly wage times each year worked. All the remaining months and days are also included in the severance pay calculation. The wage taken into account in this calculation is the gross wage, which includes the additional payments as well as the main wage earned in return for the work.
A ceiling amount has been determined for the gross wage, including the seniority basis wages. The Severance Pay ceiling, which is determined as the retirement bonus of the highest civil servant, is updated every year with the salary hike of civil servants twice a year.
