"Attorney Faces Criminal Charges After Clients Quit Their Nursing Jobs"



Employment at will is supposed to work in both directions, and yet...: "A lawyer who advised 10 nurses that they were free to quit their jobs at a Long Island nursing facility now faces 13 criminal charges as a result of the nurses' walkout -- a prosecution his supporters say could have a chilling effect on attorneys who represent workers in labor disputes." A Suffolk County grand jury indicted Felix Vinluan along with the ten Filipino nurses even though state investigations found that the nurses' mass resignation had not wound up harming their vulnerable patients, whose shifts were covered. Commentary: Nicole Black, Scott Greenfield, Lamplighter.
