Nurses want to pay overtime to pay a statutory fee – or do you think it was recently spoken? No! The publication under this title was published in 2008 by the LETA news agency, and then Aigars Lavrinovičs, president of the Latvian Nursing Union, stressed that hospitals did not take into account statutory salaries and paid overtime for regular monthly wages, but states in the Labor Act that if employee work for more than 40 hours, the employer submits a double overtime payment to a subordinate. However, during the crisis in 2009, the media was renamed as an extension of normal working time and was not paid twice.
It was ten years old, but this year it was challenged at the Constitutional Court, which in May confirmed that the payment of the normal working hours of medical personnel was not in accordance with the principle of equality laid down in the case-law. Such a judgment means that doctors are entitled to an equitable remuneration or a double overtime payment from 1 January of the following year.
In addition to the promising 10 million euros, Prime Minister Māris Kučinskis executed a judgment of the Constitutional Court and paid overtime in the next financial year. Hospital representatives, however, felt that this money would not be sufficient if they wanted to provide services at exactly the same level as this year. On the other hand, the Minister of Health, Anda Čaksa, asked if the patient would not become a hostage in this situation, he answered negatively and claimed that he would act in the interests of patients.
But, as soon as it is closer to January 1, more health professionals will become a "promised man" government. In order to comply with the Constitutional Court judgment next year, which provides for a 50-hour deadline for the doctor to be canceled as a normal extended working time and began to pay twice as much every other hour after 40 hours after January 1, the new government will have to find an additional 16 up to 19 million euros, said LNT on Sunday. In addition, the new government plans to devote an additional $ 19 million in its visions.
Experts say that hospitals can face the financial crisis in the second half of next year. Due to the lack of staff it is impossible without overtime. For example, staff members of the Pauls Stradiņš University Hospital should share the missing 40 doctors and the missing 45 nurses. It seems that before the election of the phrase "How can he not be convinced?" It always corresponds to the rep, but the new government will flow.
