The minister urged tourism firms that they can benefit from the Short-Term Employment supports for their personnel.If a firm’s operations are suspended completely or partially due to a Force Majeure, such as the COVID19 pandemic, the government pays their personnel salaries.

 

Turkish Employment Agency said that the amount of daily short employment allowance is 60% of daily gross average earning. The virus infected 15,679 people in Turkey and caused 277 deaths so far.
