Florida healthcare staffing company, Avant Healthcare Professionals LLC, has agreed to pay $27,750 to resolve charges by the U.S. Department of Justice that the company posted discriminatory job advertisements on the Internet.

The Department of Justice alleges that the company published hundreds of job advertisements showing preference for foreign-trained individuals seeking permanent residence or H-1B visa sponsorship over U.S. workers in violation of the Immigration and Nationality Act which prohibits employers from discriminating on the basis of citizenship or immigration status unless required by law, regulation, or government contract.
