Flexibilisation and Modernisation of the Turkish Labour Market
The studies and proposals underlying this book were initiated within the framework of the Matra Pre-accession Projects Programme of the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs. So many valuable information came to light in the course of the project that this revised and updated version of the reports is now presented to a wider audience. Its keen insights, applicable both in general and specifically to Turkey, shed light on such vital employment issues as the following:
- A general introduction to key actors in the Turkish labour market;
- models of linking security with flexibility;
- relation between the formal and informal labour markets;
- industrial relations and collective bargaining;
- reciprocal rights and duties of worker and employer;
- the application of existing labour legislation;
- protection of flexible workers in social security.
In their analysis of the Turkish case the authors explore the role of the Ministry of Labour and Social Security and its affiliated institutions: the Social Security Institution (Sosyal Güvenlik Kurumu) and Is-Kur (which has evolved from the former Public Employment Services Organisation BK); the consistency of the flexibliity clauses of the new Turkish Labour Act with the acquis; and Turkish solutions as compared with those of EU Member States.
Although it focuses on Turkey and will be of particular interest to practitioners and scholars concerned with EU and Turkish law, the factual and descriptive analysis of labour flexibilisation that the study provides complete with various detailed models of flexibilisation will be of great value in assessing the state of employment law in any country experiencing the economic pressure of the current transitional period in worklife realities.
