Türkiye is a litigious economy, and it is standard practice for employees to file court and mediation cases against employers to settle relationship and compensation issues. At Lexist, our Employment lawyers are also litigation professionals who guide you through the risks and trends of the regulations and sector(s) in which you operate. Our lawyers will draft your labour contracts and advise you on the labour law processes in an effort to avoid future issues. If you do face problems, however, we can also advise you in an immediate and appropriate way as and when necessary.
