Are you a Junior Medical Officer working for NSW Health
Adero is launching a class action to recover unpaid wages on behalf of Junior Medical Officers employed by NSW Health at public hospitals throughout New South Wales. We are instructed that NSW Health has an entrenched practice of failing to pay Junior Medical Officers for unscheduled or non-rostered hours worked. Find out if you have also been underpaid now!
We have completed six months of due diligence and secured litigation funding in relation to up to 10,000 effected NSW Health employees, employed since 2013. As a result, this claim can be brought on a no win no fee basis to class members. We are also progressing due diligence on comparable claims in Queensland and Victoria. Employers in the public health sector have established an industry practice which normalises Junior Medical Officers forgoing payment of wages for unscheduled or non-rostered hours worked. Adero contends this practice is both unlawful and potentially hazardous to the health of health workers and their patients.
If you work or have worked as a Junior Medical Officer in the public health sector, tell us your story confidentially, now. Overtime is generally unpaid when a Junior Medical Officer provides care at the end of a rostered shift. In doing the best for your patients and assisting with a medical emergency, completing a procedure, or finalising processes such as transferring, admitting or discharging a patient, you may find yourself working additional hours that you are not being remunerated for. Working these additional hours may result in fatigue, in turn placing yourself and/or your patients at risk.
