Turkey has taken sweeping steps to cushion the economic fallout of the coronavirus pandemic to protect both employers and employees.
Any firm forced out of business due to a Force Majeure, such as the pandemic, can approach the government.
The government will pay 60% of the staff salaries for a period of three months.
With this short-term employment allowance, the government will make direct transfers — within the ranges of 1,752 Turkish liras ($260) to 4,381 liras ($650) — in the employees’ bank accounts directly.
The government will also pay for their health insurance during the period.
