State petitions labor court to stop doctors' resignations

September 1, 2011 13:15

The State Attorney's Office filed an urgent petition to the Labor Court on Thursday, requesting an injunction to prevent the resignation of specialist doctors.

The move follows an announcement by the Health Ministry on Wednesday that Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein considered the mass resignation letters turned in by medical residents as illegal.

Despite the illegality of the move,the Hospital Management Office is preparing for the possibility that the residents may not show up for work on Sunday, when the resignation letters were scheduled to go into effect.
