Abstract

In this research, it was sought to understand the effect of the short-time working allowance received by private schools during the Covid-19/Pandemic period on employee assurance and motivation, with the opinions of the teachers who received this allowance. The sample of the study was the English teachers working in a private school in Antalya, Döşemealtı. Most of the teachers who participated in the interview stated that the short-time working allowance affected their assurance and motivation negatively. They stated that although they worked for full time, their assurances were paid between 10-12 days a month and this would negatively affect their retirement in the future, and this period would be prolonged for almost a year and a half. In addition, they reported that they received their salaries fragmented during this process and that they experienced difficulties in that sense. Studies on short-time working allowance mostly mentioned about the benefits it provided and how it could be used legally. This study was expected to guide private school founders in terms of how the short-time working allowance affected employee motivation and assurance, and to contribute to the literature in this sense. In order to solve the problems caused by the short time working allowance, it was foreseen that the necessary research and development studies should be done before distributing the short-time working allowance to the institutions.
