The Labor Court condemns the University Hospital of Liège to pay more than € 12,000 to a medical assistant. In practice, her employer asked her to work up to 60 hours a week. Forced overtime and paid less than he will recover. The judgment can make case law. Selim Sid is the current medical assistant. He is now a hematologist at Jolimont Hospital: " The theoretical schedule I should have had was an average of 48 hours per week." Schedule that "could be increased to 60 hours if the candidate doctor's desire was not my wish. So despite my desire to stay 48 hours a week, which the law absolutely allows me to do, I had several pressures to force myself to work more. have regularly sent hours for care too heavily compared to my number of hours. I got paid less than my colleagues for the same job to put financial pressure on me as the court found in them. "
Selim Sid would like to point out that he had a lot of support by the profession, but anonymously: "I had many testimonies from colleagues who supported me but did not dare publicly give me their support. They were afraid of revenge for themselves. I had many message messages after the verdict."
