Smile Work in lieu of maintenance

Hello. It has been suggested that one of the owners on our sitesi looks after the garden area and will not pay maintenance fees for doing so. Is this legal? Does it not mean that person would be employed? It would mean we do not need to employ a gardener.

Re: Work in lieu of maintenance

This is perfectly legal and they would not be employed, many apartment blocks do this in Turkey.

Re: Work in lieu of maintenance

well, I suppose if it suits everyone and the person does a good job which as an owner he/she would have a vested interest in so doing compared to an outsider then that would be an ideal arrangement - why are you so concerned about the legalities - it sounds like you have had your nose put out of joint for some reason ............

Re: Work in lieu of maintenance

As far as ı am aware,ıf they work on the sıte as a gardener etc and dont pay maıntaınance,then ıt would classed as workıng.
If a turk does ıt,no problem,but a foreıgner may be classed as workıng ıllıgally.

Re: Work in lieu of maintenance

How about if he pays a nominal fee of 1 lira for his maintenance and agrees to do the work. I would only be concerned if something happens to him whilst doing the garden so he would have to be indemnified. Call me cautious. Better to be safe than sorry.

Re: Work in lieu of maintenance

Trust me, if someone decides to "drop a dime" you'll find that payment in kind is classed as wages, therefore they are considered to be working. I mean think it through guys...

Re: Work in lieu of maintenance

It's certainly a good idea to let one of the owners do the gardening. He may do a better job than an outsider.

Although he may not be paid for doing it, one could argue that he's doing something that a turkish guy should be doing.

There's clearly nothing wrong with doing your own gardening, but doing it for a complex could be a legally grey area.

Re: Work in lieu of maintenance

As long as there is nothing in writing surely there is nothing illegal if he does the gardens for free. You are of course dependent on his honesty . However for him to pay site fees at a different rate from everyone else I would suggest needs a formal management or AGM agreement.
