Large employers sometimes try to skirt around state and federal laws regarding their employees. They push the limits of what they can do—and sometimes teeter over the edge. Kaiser Permanente is no exception. There are situations where they take advantage of their employees by violating wage and hour laws or discriminating against their employees for illegal reasons. In Inglewood, employees at Kaiser Permanente Inglewood Medical Offices are specifically affected. When those situations occur, you have legal options, and The Rager Law Firm can help.

Beginning Your Claim Against Kaiser Permanente
Kaiser Permanente employs over 20,000 people in California. Because of frequent complaints regarding employment law violations, Kaiser has developed their own arbitration process to deal with complaints. Employees are required to use this system instead of going straight to the regular court system.
The Rager Law Firm has been using this system for over a decade. We understand the ins and outs of this system, and we can help you navigate the arbitration system. Failing to follow specific timelines can restrict or inhibit your ability to assert your employment claim. Don’t let that happen to you—get a Kaiser Permanente attorney who will work by your side through this process.
You need to act quickly if you feel that you have an employment claim against Kaiser Permanente. However, before you can begin the process of asserting your claim, you need to do some investigation. These investigations might include things like:
Speaking to potential witnesses
Gathering hour or wage records
Talking to others who may have had similar experiences
Getting information about other similar experiences generally
Most terminations, transfers, or demotions happen for legally valid reasons. This is, in large part, because California is an at-will state. That means that you can be terminated or your employment can be changed for any legal reason. You need to gather extensive information and evidence to prove that the negative action that the employer took is not permitted by law.
Fighting Back Against Your Employer
One of the most common complaints that we see is for retaliation. California has extensive protections for healthcare workers who make complaints about patient safety and care. Unfortunately, Kaiser may take adverse action against you after you make this type of criticism, despite the fact that this type of activity is illegal under California law.
