A class action on behalf of Doctors in Training (DIT) arising out of their employers' failure to pay overtime in compliance with their Industrial Agreement.
Your registration will be confidential. Your identity will not be disclosed to your employer without your consent.
Gordon Legal, together with Hayden Stephens & Associates, have been engaged by the Victorian division of the Australian Salaried Medical Officers Federation (ASMOF) and a number of individual junior doctors to pursue claims in the Federal Court of Australia against a number of Victorian Health Services. These claims will allege that those Health Services failed to pay Doctors in Training for the un-rostered overtime worked over the previous six years of their employment.
It doesn’t cost you anything to register your interest in participating in the class action or to find out whether you might be entitled to make a claim for your overtime.
You can register on a confidential basis with Gordon Legal if you have worked as a Doctor in Training in Victoria at any time since January 2015. Upon registration, we will be happy to provide you with the information you need to assess your rights, confidentially and with no obligation.
