Social Security Institution Employment Agreement Termination Codes Have Been Amended

In accordance with the circular published by the Social Security Institution (“SSI”) on 1 April 2021 code titled “29 - Termination by the employer due to the behavior of the employee breaching the rules of morality and goodwill” has been removed from the table titled “2.1 Reason of termination” on the circular dated 22 February 2013 and numbered 2013/11 and new codes have been added. In accordance with the amendment the employer will be notifying the SSI using the codes between 42 and 50 in case of the termination of the employment agreement by the employer due to the behavior of the employee breaching the rules of morality and goodwill.

The reasons allowing for the immediate termination with just cause of the employment agreement by the employer for reasons of breach the rules of morality and goodwill by the employee have been set out in article 25 / II of the Labor Law by way of examples. The previous Code 29 encompassed all actions described with Article 25 / II of the Labor Law. The amendment has introduced new codes corresponding to the actions of the employee which may constitute a breach of the rules of morality and goodwill. Accordingly, the employer will be required to indicate the just cause allowing for immediate termination to the SSI.

The newly introduced codes and their explanations are provided below.
