Labor Law, Social Security Law and Trade Union Law

Labor Law is a branch of law that regulates the employment relationship between the employee and the employer. In order for a business relationship to be within the scope of Labor Law, the employee must be employed by someone else in return for a wage. We can define Labor Law as the branch of law that regulates the labor relations between the employer and the employee working in return for wages based on the employment contract. Every legal relationship to be experienced between the parties, from the moment of the contract to the termination of the contract after the establishment of the employment contract between the employee and the employer, who is numerically a single person, constitutes the subject of Individual Labor Law. The establishment of the employment contract, the determination and fulfillment of the rights and obligations arising from this contract, the regulation of the working conditions during the continuation of the employment contract, the working and rest periods, the worker’s health and safety, the employment of the worker, the termination of the employment contract and its consequences are subjects of the Individual Labor Law.

Collective labor law, which is a branch of Labor Law, is a branch of law that is included in our legislation as a requirement of the social state understanding and allows the parties of business relations to act collectively, and its subject is collective bargaining agreements with the same employer at the collective level of more than one worker. Labor relations, in which at least one of the parties is a trade union, constitutes the subject of Collective Labor Law. The relationship between the union and its members is also within the scope of Collective Labor Law. Issues such as the establishment, organs and activities of workers’ and employers’ unions, membership in unions, the creation of a collective bargaining agreement, the peaceful resolution of collective labor disputes, the relations between the union and its members, the use of strikes and lockouts are among the subjects of Collective Labor Law. In collective labor law, unlike the individual labor law, In the contract with the employer is the employee not alone, but the union negotiations are done on behalf of the employee in collective bargaining agreements and negotiations. Here, Trade Union Law is the branch of law that regulates the organizational structure and establishment, membership of the unions, which are the structure formed by the organization of the workers or employers, and the legal relations that determine the rights and obligations of both parties, especially the collective labor agreements and collective bargaining agreements to which the unions are a party.

Social Security Law, on the other hand, is the private law that regulates the rights that people have throughout their entire life and even after their death, and how and these rights are acquired, ensures the social welfare of the individuals in the society, aims to prevent the risks that may arise in terms of individuals. It a law to prevent the decrease in the income of the society and the increase in its expenses. It is a branch of law that consists of rules that go beyond the rules.

It is the employment contract signed by the parties that determines the basic relationship between the employee and the employer. While employment contracts play an important role in determining the subjective rights of both parties before the judiciary when a dispute arises, they also provide assurance for both parties. Therefore, the employment contract is very important for both the employer and the employee. On the other hand, while constantly renewed labor and social security legislation imposes significant obligations and burdens on employers and workers, it is also a matter of expertise to constantly monitor the changing and developing legislation and to control the compliance of internal regulations with the business environment and relationship. For this reason, the parties of labor law, consisting of workers and employers, need expert and experienced labor law lawyers.
