Hello, I’m Ben. It’s my pleasure to assist you today. I may also ask for some preliminary information to help me determine the legal position.
How long have you worked there for? Please note this is not always an instant service and I may not be able to reply immediately. Rest assured that I am dealing with your query and will get back to you today. Thanks
Many thanks for your patience, I am pleased to be able to continue assisting with your query now. As to the phone call, another solicitor accept your request so they should be calling you.
Going back to your query, Turkey is currently on the exempt list of countries which means you do not have to quarantine when you return. Therefore, if you are fit and able to work, you should be allowed to do so. As an extra safety precaution due to the current circumstances, the employer may require you to undertake a Covid-19 test, but they should not penalise you in the meantime by not paying you until you have your results. Doing so would amount to an unlawful deduction of wages which means you can challenge them and even pursue them to recover what you are owed if necessary.
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
