Corizon Health paid $40,000 to settle a lawsuit alleging it beached a contract with Nursefinders.
The February 26, 2016, settlement resolved a lawsuit Nursefinders filed in a Virginia state court, but which was removed to a federal court, on March 20, 2015.
Nursefinders employs nurses and other health-care professionals for temporary placement at its customers’ facilities.
Corizon entered into a contract with Nursefinders’ Florida affiliates of Jacksonville, Pensacola, Tampa, and North Florida on April 30, 2013. The contract provided that Corizon would pay Nursefinders ‘‘a conversion fee of 30% of an employee’s annual salary’’ if the facility hired an employee to become an employee of the facility.
Corizon began hiring all Nursefinders’ nurses from the Tallahassee branch, but it failed to pay invoices issued for the nurses it hired permanently. Nursefinders alleged damages of $198,432.
The $40,000 settlement was inclusive of attorney fees.
Nursefinders was represented by Richmond, Virginia, attorneys Thamer E. Temple, III, and Kristie G. Haynes. See: NFR, LLC v. Corizon Health, USDC, E.D. Virginia, Case No. 3:15-cv-00367.
