State AG orders Albany Med to pay back $90k to foreign nurse recruits
It’s a victory for seven former nurses at Albany Medical Center.
Those nurses were recruited from foreign countries and were forced to pay up to $20,000 if they resigned or were fired within three years of employment.
The state Attorney General’s Office says the repayment fee is illegal, and the company must repay the nurses over $90,000.
Under the agreement, Albany Med must also notify current and former nurses that the repayment fee has been removed from their contracts.
