Retirement bonuses, severance pay, which is a guarantee of unemployment, directly concern millions of employees. Private sector employees receive a severance pay only for the time they spend in their last workplace, while public employees receive a severance pay when working in the public sector. Separate salaries are also paid to government employees for the period of military service. The period of outstanding military service when working in the public sector is added to the period of seniority in case of retirement. A person who retires from the private sector and leaves the service for any reason other than retirement, his term of military service cannot be added to his seniority, even if he is a government employee. Employees who disrupt the health of the workplace and work environment may leave the job after receiving a severance pay along with a health report.

Although an employee whose employment contract has been terminated is paid on the total final wage, this includes side payments in addition to wages. Those who quit receiving their pensions while working in the second workplace are given seniority when they leave.
