So, the Danish government has started the ball rolling by giving compensation to female night shift workers who develop breast cancer: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/scotland/7945145.stm Doubtless HMG will eventually follow suit in 2011, when their studies are complete. But what implications will this have? Women being taken off night shift but retaining night shift pay so that they won't be disadvantaged? Hospitals being closed at night due to insufficient staff? Nothing would surprise me.
