Additional remuneration for medical duty

In the judgment of the Supreme Court issued by the panel of Seven Judges on 6 November 2014, the Supreme Court ruled that for the working time of medical duty which completes average working hours, the doctor shall receive only the remuneration for overtime work.

The judgment answers a question whether in case a doctor is working a medical duty taking 11-hour rest after such a duty and consequently not working his nominal working time, he shall receive the remuneration for a duty or must first complete missing hours in his nominal working time. The Supreme Court complied with the second statement, claiming that working time of medical duty completes the nominal working time of the doctor’s and the additional remuneration for time of medical duty is due only in case of excess of average working hours.
