Unfair Dismissal in Turkish Employment Law

Bakirci, Kadriye LU (2004) In Employee Responsibilities and Rights Journal 16(2). p.49-69
Abstract
Under the previous Employment Act No. 1475 employers had the right to dismiss any employee as they saw fit and there was no reinstatement for unfair or unjustified dismissal. However in the context of the national policy of harmonization with the European Union, the Turkish government introduced a new Act on job security (No. 4773). Then a new Employment Act (No. 4857), which included job security provisions, was introduced, whereas the Job Security Act No. 4773 and Employment Act No. 1475 were repealed. However this new Act provides only limited protection against unfair or unjustified dismissal because not all employees and organizations are covered by the new Act No. 4857.
