Torrance Kaiser Permanente Attorney Kaiser Permanente employs over 20,000 people in California. They also help thousands of patients every year. It takes a huge, dedicated team to care for that many people. However, because of a large number of people that run through medical facilities like the Torrance Medical Offices, Kaiser sometimes mistreats their employees for the sake of making money by getting patients through their facilities.
California has strict patient care laws. Health employees are sometimes required to report violations of patient care standards, and they may voluntarily report concerning conditions as well. When that happens, your employer should simply address the problem and move on. However, there are situations where a supervisor or even a co-worker will take negative action against the employee that reported the incident. This type of activity is often illegal, and you can take action against your employer.
The Rager Law Firm has been asserting claims against Kaiser Permanente for over 15 years. Many of these claims deal with the exact situations described above. It is based on “retaliation.” Oher employment claims include things like harassment, discrimination, and wrongful termination.
How Can a Kaiser Permanente Attorney Help with Your Employment Claim?
You can start your employment law claim against Kaiser Permanente yourself. However, your employer wants you to do this because it is much harder to win your case when you don’t have an attorney. There are two primary reasons that a Kaiser Permanente attorney will be helpful to your employment-related case.
Navigating Kaiser Permanente’s Arbitration Process. Kaiser Permanente has their own specific arbitration process, instead of using the traditional court system. The rules and requirements are complicated. You can end up losing your case just because you overlooked a deadline. Your attorney can help you work through this often-complicated process.
Investigation and Gathering Evidence. Gather information, talking to witnesses, and getting evidence takes significant time and effort. When you put those tasks into someone else’s hands, it takes the work off of your shoulders. Kaiser Permanente attorneys like those at The Rager Law Firm have also gone through this before, which means they know who to speak with and how to get specific information. They also know the questions to ask to get the right information.
Proving your case and following the technical requirements is absolutely vital to your situation. You have the best chance of having a favorable result when you have an experienced attorney on your side.
Protecting Your Rights as an Employee

You do not have to just wait out the negative treatment or switch jobs. You have other options, and The Rager Law Firm can help you work through those options. We can help you determine what you should do next.
