31 October 2017
Client Alert | Turkey | Labour Law
On 25 October 2017, the Law on Labour Courts No. 7036 (the "new Labour Courts Law") abrogating the Law on Labour Courts No. 5521 (the “Abrogated Law No. 5521”) was published in the Official Gazette No. 30221 and entered into force on 25 October 2017 except for the provisions with respect to the mandatory mediation phases.
This Client Alert looks at the impact of the amendments to Abrogated Law No. 5521, as well as the amendments made to other laws. For instance, while new Labour Courts Law substantially modifies the Labour Law No. 4857, it also introduces changes to the Law on Negotiation in Legal Disputes No. 6325 and the Law on Trade Unions and Collective Bargaining Agreements No. 6356 in order to ensure legal compliance of the new appeal procedures to be held before the Courts of Appeal.
