New York Attorney General investigating "No Haitians need apply" Ad

When Interim Healthcare Inc. decided to put their racist ad "No Haitians" in the local New York pennysaver newspaper, they did not think it would turn out this way. Not only they will have this in their record for ever, now the government is involved. New york Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has announced that they are launching an inquiry into Interim Healthcare Inc. for discriminatory practices.


According to Attorney General Schneiderman, the ad violates federal and state civil rights law prohibiting discrimination in hiring on the basis of national origin. They are requesting the names of all employees involved in hiring nurses and nurses' aides, and also those responsible for making the ad. Mr. Schneiderman is also requesting for any complaints related to discrimination, harassment or retaliation against Interim Healthcare.

All this came about after their famous job listing in the New York Saver newspaper specifically requesting no Haitians need to apply for their nursing position that was available. This investigation initiated by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman will not be limited to the actual ad; they will go back to a number of years to see if in fact Interim Healthcare Inc. has been discriminating against Haitian job seekers.
