On behalf of Rager Law Firm posted on September 07, 2018
Kaiser Permanente provides employment to hundreds of doctors, nurses, administrators, and support staff. A company that large has extremely complex internal policies regarding employee discipline, standards, and privacy. However, they are also extremely cost-motivated, and they may take adverse action against their employees to save money. They may also look the other way when management or other employees are acting in a harmful way toward other workers. When this type of action takes place, you need a Chino Kaiser Permanente attorney to help with your employment claim against this huge company.

How Rager Law Firm Can Help with Your Chino Kaiser Permanente Employment Claim

A Chino Kaiser Permanente attorney can also help you gather information to help you present your case, including:
Wage or hour records

Patient information or documents that might otherwise be private
Having someone who has dealt with this specific employer repeatedly in the past can be an invaluable resource for any employee who is considering an employment claim.
Applicable California Laws to Consider
Both federal law and the laws in Chino, California protect workers in a variety of ways. There are also special protections for healthcare workers that might apply to your situation as well.
For example, California Code Section 1278.5 encourages healthcare workers, including nurses and other members of medical staff to notify the government of suspected unsafe patient care and conditions. If a healthcare worker reports these conditions and Kaiser Permanente terminates your employment shortly after that, you may have a good claim for wrongful termination. Keep in mind, however, that Kaiser will almost never come out and say that they have ended your employment because of your report. They may “develop” another reason to fire you.
