Four American Samoa hospital employees rescind resignations

3:14 pm on 19 August 2011

Four office workers from American Samoa's LBJ Hospital, who resigned last week, have rescinded their resignations.

The employees have hired lawyer, Fiti Sunia, who's written to the LBJ chief financial officer, Viola Babbock, saying his clients had been coerced into resigning.

He says they'd been told what to write and sign as purported resignations, which he says is a blatant denial of rights.

Mr Sunia says his clients must be given their jobs back.
