A seasonal hotel staff member who is fired is not entitled to severance pay for the “off-season period” during which they were not being employed, the Supreme Court's labour relations section ruled on Monday.
Supreme Court decision No. 305/2011 challenged labour ministry decision No. 11855/2007 and the hotel staff collective work contracts, according to which, hotel employees should be fully compensated even for the so-called “off-season period” in case they are fired.
