High Court debates doctors' petition to allow resignations

October 25, 2011 16:03

The High Court of Justice began debating Tuesday afternoon a petition filed by five doctors, asking the High Court to annul the National Labor Court's ruling earlier this month that doctors' resignations were invalid.

One of the five was Dr. Yona Weissbuch, a resident at the Rabin Medical Center in Petah Tikva and chairman of Mirsham, the advocacy group that campaigned for the doctors' resignations.The petition argued that the National Labor Court's ruling amounts to "modern day slavery" and violates the Basic Law on Freedom of Employment.

In its 64-page response to the doctors' petition submitted to the High Court on Monday evening, the state countered that the doctors' resignations constituted collective organizational measures.
