Immigrant Nurse Files Lawsuit, Accuses Staffing Agency of Pressuring Him to Work in Unsafe Conditions

An immigrant nurse who came to the U.S. from the Philippines has filed a lawsuit over a contract with his former employer that he said punishes those who quit their jobs, according to court documents.

Benzor Shem Vidal filed the lawsuit Sept. 16 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York.

He alleges that after entering the U.S. this year on a visa sponsored by his former employer, New York City-based Advanced Care Staffing, he “confronted grueling and unsafe working conditions that threatened his nursing license — including unmanageable patient loads of more than 40 patients at a time.”
