Arbitration Against Kaiser Permanente
Nearly every worker at Kaiser Permanente has agreed to use Kaiser’s arbitration process to deal with any legal claims instead of going to court as you usually would. While arbitration is generally a good thing for workers because it resolves claims faster, Kaiser’s arbitration process is complex. In fact, Kaiser may have made it deliberately complicated to discourage workers from using it. Thankfully, Attorneys at Rager Law Firm has over 15 years of experience using this system that he can put to work for you.
The Office of the Independent Administrator will arbitrate claims again Kaiser Permanente in Ontario. The arbitrator can be one or more people. This arbitrator or panel of arbitrators is supposed to be an independent, impartial group who will decide claims fairly after reviewing all of the facts and information in your case. Unfortunately, getting an impartial arbitrator may not always be possible. It is especially important in those situations to have an experienced Ontario Kaiser Permanente attorney to help you deal with potential bias or fundamental unfairness.
Wrongful Termination at Kaiser Permanente
Kaiser Permanente has a history of terminating employees for reasons that may not be entirely accurate. They occasionally use these “reasons” for termination as a pretext for the true reason that they want to terminate you. Potential reasons that you may have been provided may include things like:
Performance issues that were never addressed previously
HIPAA compliance or privacy issues
Violation of performance improvement plans
Kaiser has a progressive disciplinary policy that must be used before an employee can be terminated in most circumstances. When they do not use this plan at all, or they skip steps that are a vital part of the program, then that may be grounds for a wrongful termination claim.
Kaiser’s employment policies are focused on saving the company money wherever they can, and that can mean that they take advantage of their workers or intentionally discriminate to save on costs. Don’t let this happen to you!
