Kaiser Permanente and its related entities and subsidiaries employ over 20,000 people. This huge employer definitely adds value to the community, but it also, unfortunately, sometimes takes advantage or mistreats its employees. However, no employer is too big to avoid the laws in Harbor City, and Kaiser Permanente is no exception.
The Rager Law Firm has been helping employees assert their rights against Kaiser Permanente and its related entities for over 15 years. These other affiliates include:
Kaiser Foundation Hospitals
Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, Inc.
Southern California Permanente Medical Group
The Permanente Medical Group
In Harbor City, you will find:
Kaiser Permanente South Bay Medical Center
Kaiser Permanente Parkview Medical Office
Kaiser Permanente Normandie South Medical Office
Kaiser Permanente and its affiliates use an alternative dispute resolution process that involves an arbitration system that they designed. That means another attorney’s experience with the average employment case will not necessarily help you win your lawsuit against Kaiser Permanente. Having specific experience and knowledge of the inner workings of the arbitration process can significantly increase your chances of having a successful result from your employment case.
Potential Employee Claims Against Kaiser Permanente
Employees have rights under both federal and state law that they can assert against their employer when they feel like they are being mistreated. These laws are particularly important to health care workers who are reporting mistreatment and poor conditions that put patient health at risk. Employees in the following roles have special protection under these circumstances:
California places great value on patient health, so the legislature has enacted specific anti-retaliation laws in these circumstances. That means that Kaiser Permanente cannot fire you or take other adverse employment action, like give you poor work assignments, cut your hours, or deny you a raise because you reported patient mistreatment.
If you feel that you have been mistreated at work, you should talk to The Rager Law Firm. Our Harbor City Kaiser Permanente attorneys can help you determine whether you have a claim and what your next steps should be.
