The labor contract between the employer and the employee should be done in written form.
According to the Article 8 entitled ‘’Definition and Form’’ of the Labor Law no. 4857; “Labor contract is an agreement between an employer and an employee about salary, benefits and working conditions. Labor contract is not subject to a special form unless otherwise indicated in law. The labor contracts whose durations are 1 year or more should be made in written form. These documents are exempt from stamp tax, other fees and duties.”
Despite of legal obligations, the labor contracts are not made in written form in Turkey. That situation results in forfeitures in case of a disagreement between the employer and the employee. As a result of that, it is essential to make a written agreement for the security of reciprocal rights and benefits and also it is a statutory obligation.
