A Florida-based healthcare company is apologizing to the Haitian community after it posted what many are calling a discriminatory job ad in upstate New York.

Interim Healthcare, which has its corporate office in Sunrise, offers health care services across the country through 300 different franchises.

In an Oct. 15 ad looking for nurses in Rockland County, NY, it explicitly states “no Haitians" should apply. The ad appeared in the widely distributed Pennysaver newsletter.
