The Hospital Syndicate indicated that some banks refrain from paying hospital employees’ wages and ask the hospital to hand over the wages in cash, so that it returns in turn and hands it to the employees.
The Syndicate of Hospitals in Lebanon announced that “some banks refrain from paying hospital employees’ wages and ask the hospital to deliver the value of the wages in cash so that it returns in turn and hands it over to the employees, even though the hospital has a credit account in the bank, and in this account there are funds that exceed the value of wages.”
The Syndicate was surprised by the matter, considering that it was “finally rejected, especially since hospitals receive their dues according to bank transfers or checks, and their cash receipts are few, and the bank cannot withhold them in this blatant way from the employees whose wages the hospital has settled in.”
She stressed that “this measure cuts off employees working in hospitals for their livelihood,” asking “the Governor of the Banque du Liban to immediately intervene with the concerned banks in order to retract it, otherwise the hospitals will have a position on the banks and their employees that take such a measure, and the initiator is darker.”
