Turkey is rich in cultural and Islamic religious heritage. Employees are entitled to paid time off for official public holidays and religious observances.
If an employee is required to work on a public holiday, he or she is entitled to additional compensation, the exact amount of which is unclear. Paid time off for religious and cultural observances are discretionary and vary among employers.
