‘No Haitians’ want ad puts Healthcare company under fire

ALBANY, USA ( – A classified ad for a nurse position barred Haitians from applying for the position, causing an uproar in New York over the discrimination.

Published in the October 15, 2015 issue of Pennysaver (Rockland County, New York), the ad by Interim Healthcare Inc. reads of the requirements:

Laid back nurse, no haitians, must have strong resipiratory mngt, gtube…

The ad was allegedly taken out for an in-home nursing care position in West Haverstraw, New York. In a statement Sunday, Interim wrote: “We value the diversity of our patients and our employees. The ad in the Pennysaver for an LPN is totally unacceptable and is offensive to us, and we know to all of you.”

The company says it is conducting an investigation to determine how it happened and that it doesn’t happen again. Its president, Ketherine McNally, wrote: “Please accept our sincere apology. In particular we apologize to the entire Haitian community.”

State Senator, David Carlucci, is calling for an investigation by the New York State Department of Labor and the federal Equal Opportunity Employment Commission.

Carlucci said Interim Healthcare Inc. “should be ashamed of itself” and the Pennysaver “should strongly reconsider” running any more ads for the company.

On Tuesday, the New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced that his office’s Civil Rights Bureau would be opening an investigation into the discriminatory help wanted ad.
