UK GOVERNMENT FACING SECOND LEGAL CHALLENGE OVER SLAVE WAGE CONTRACTS


From The Independent:
The Health Secretary is facing a second legal challenge to try to block the imposition of new junior doctor contracts.

The NHS staff campaign group Just Health branded the controversial contract “toxic” and unsafe for doctors and patients.

It is arguing that Jeremy Hunt has no legal right to force the new contract on the majority of junior doctors, and that he has not properly consulted all relevant parties.

A letter before action – usually the first step in taking disputes to court – will be delivered to Mr Hunt on Monday morning.

Campaigners took the move after raising £100,000 over four days through a crowdfunding website to bankroll the proceedings.
