Gov’t offers deadline on severance payment to submit final proposals

A deadline of July 13 has been set for both employers and employees to submit the final text of their proposal for a severance payment, Labor Minister Mehmet Müezzinoğlu said on July 5.

“Yesterday we once again invited stakeholders from both sides of the table to be able to shape their common ground. The issue will be centered on fairness on four topic titles until July 13,” Müezzinoğlu said at a press conference in the capital Ankara on July 5.

“The first is the rights of the worker. The second is how the assurance will be shaped. The third is about transparency over which day and how much money is paid. The fourth is sustainability. One of our stakeholders also wanted to add continuity and experience to the topic titles,” he added. 

Müezzinoğlu minister said that if the common points between the employer and the employee exceed 50 percent, the government should make an effort to take it to 70 percent and would immediately take it to parliament.

“We will take the decision to the prime minister after July 13. There should be a consensus of over 70 percent with our stakeholders on severance payments,” he added.
