Kaiser Permanente is a huge employer. It employs thousands of people, including doctors, nurses, other healthcare professionals, and administrative support staff. Related entities include:
Southern California Permanente Medical Group
The Permanente Medical Group
Kaiser Foundation Hospitals
Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, Inc.
The Permanent Federation, LLC
Although Kaiser adds a lot of value to the community in Baldwin as a whole, it can also be very detrimental to individual workers when it engages in unethical or illegal employment activities. If you think that your employer has discriminated, harassed, wrongfully terminated, or retaliated against you, it’s time to call a Baldwin Kaiser Permanente attorney for help.
Rager Law Office has been helping employees of Kaiser Permanente for over 15 years. While we have had some great success for clients, Kaiser still has not learned its lesson. Because it is so large, the corporate culture sometimes looks the other way when illegal activities take place. However, just because an employer is big does not mean that they are above the state and federal requirements to protect workers.
Laws Protecting Workers in Baldwin, California
Federal and state laws protect workers from unfair and discriminatory practices at work. These laws include:
Equal Employment Opportunity Act
Fair Labor Standards Act
Occupational Safety and Health Act
Family and Medical Leave Act
California Health and Safety Code Section 1278.5
California Business and Professions Code Section 2056
Employers cannot discriminate or harass workers or allow others to take this type of action without exposing themselves to legal liability.
Damages Available in Employment Law Claims
You can get money damages from many types of employment law claims. This money is designed to put you in a place where you would be if the discrimination, retaliation, wrongful termination, or other adverse employment action would not have occurred. Every case is different, but you may have the following potential categories of damages available you as part of your employment law claim:
Lost wages and benefits
Money for emotional distress
Damages for loss of reputation
In some severe cases, you may also be entitled to punitive damages. This category of damages is not focused on your losses but is designed to punish the wrongdoer for their actions. It is supposed to deter future illegal activities as well. Because Kaiser Permanente has been involved in many other employment law claims, some cases against them today may warrant punitive damages if they are similar to wrongful acts taken in the past.
