International and Immigration Law
, August 2008
The Court of Appeals in the Seventh Circuit affirmed the district court’s holding that a private complaint is not necessary for the Secretary of Labor to initiate an investigation under the Immigration Nursing Relief Act, and that if foreign nurses are not paid the same wage as domestic registered nurses similarly employed in a facility, then they are entitled to back pay for their entire H-1A visa work period.
