Herne (dpa / lnw) - The dispute over the transfer of an intensive care nurse, who had requested regular mask breaks, comes on Thursday (10.15) in a regular hearing in court.

The labor court in Herne deals with it.

A quality negotiation had previously failed there at the end of February.

The woman wants to reverse her transfer from intensive care to a cancer ward.

She wants her old job back.

The employer refers to his management right to deploy employees according to operational requirements (Ref .: 4 Ca 2437/20).

The plaintiff had requested a 30-minute mask break after every 75 minutes while wearing an FFP2 mask.

During that time, she wanted to do other jobs that didn't require a mask.

The woman's Recklinghausen clinic had stated that mask breaks every 75 minutes were not feasible in intensive care units.

In the merit negotiation, the judge then proposed, as a compromise, that the transfer and breaks every 120 minutes should be canceled.

The clinic refused to do that, too.

The plaintiff speaks of a forced transfer.

The clinic emphasizes that the woman has been given a demanding other job.

You couldn't run a large hospital without the employer's right to direct.
