Filipino Nurses Win vs Sentosa
In his ruling, New York Supreme Court Judge Stephen A. Bucaria did not let the 27 Filipino nurses and a physical therapist pay their employers the $25,000 “liquidated damages” for not complying with the provisions of the contract.
The judge denied the plaintiffs’ ? Sentosa Care LLC and others ? motion for summary judgment.
The nurses allegedly violated the contract with their employers when they left their jobs without completing the three-year employment provision. The nurses claimed they did so after their employers, led by Sentosa Care, committed “multiple breaches of contract” against them.
