Medical professional & labour law as key elements of the healthcare industry
Medical professional law and labour or service law play a central role in the cooperation between members of the health care professions, hospitals, outpatient clinics, primary care centres and companies in the health care sector. This cooperation regularly confronts health care industry stakeholders with two complex legal matters that pose great challenges.
Medical Professional & Employment Law: Severe penalties for non-compliance
In addition to specific legislation for health care professions (e.g. Doctors Act, GuKG, MTD Act, MABG, MTF-SHD Act), there are numerous collective agreements for the health sector, which in turn contain different working time and remuneration models.
Knowledge of the specific rights and duties as well as the statutory professional profiles of health professionals is therefore essential. Equally important is the combination of these with labour, service or hospital law requirements. Errors in the organisation of everyday cooperation can have consequences under medical professional, labour and social law, and can even lead to administrative and judicial penalties.
