As the largest managed care organization nationwide, Oakland-based Kaiser Permanente has an estimated 11.7 million enrollees in their plans, over 400,000 doctors and employees and billions in annual revenue.
With an enormous employee base, numerous Riverside Kaiser Permanente suits have arisen due to wrongful termination and other forms of workplace discrimination at the hands of KP and their network affiliates.
The Rager Law Firm has successfully fought for clients who’ve been harassed, retaliated against or mistreated for whatever reason by this massive healthcare company.
Kaiser Permanente Suits Take Skill to Navigate
Apart from the millions in damages, our Kaiser Permanente attorney has recovered for victims of various abuses, the company has been involved in patient dumping suits and was even civilly and criminally charged with such at one point.
But it’s their bias opposition to HMO arbitration reform, and their exhaustive arbitration process administered by the Office of Independent Administrator, that have been an ongoing controversy between employees, patients and KP.
Many employees of Kaiser Permanente are members of various guilds and unions, meaning they’re afforded some recourse if labor disputes arise. However, The Rager Law Firm understands the KP Code of Conduct and disciplinary bi-laws established years ago. Navigating this process without a Rager attorney may results in lessened settlement claims, or no settlement at all.
Kaiser employees terminated from their positions have much to prove, although we’re aware many dismissals are factually unlawful prior to clients retaining us. To win actual damages arising from your wrongful termination, an expert Riverside Kaiser Permanente attorney will:
Gather facts to substantiate claimant’s false dismissal, including any witnesses or visual proof
Match facts with similar cases where employee was let go under similar circumstances
Figure out if violations against FMLA, EEOC or similar California and Federal labor law exist
If KP willfully caused a HIPAA violation, setting up the employee to take the fall and lose employment.
If any part of the arbitration process is being manipulated.
Because Kaiser Permanente is large and intimidating to employees making a pittance, it’s vital to have an experienced Riverside Kaiser Permanente attorney in your corner during your hearings. We can also seek litigation away from their arbitration process if any State or Federal laws we broke not covered by their arbitration agreement.

If you’re fearing repercussions for bringing bullying, whistleblowing, discrimination or unfair wage violations against Kaiser Permanente, don’t. At the end of the day, they’re just another employer who is equally culpable for willful violations of employment law as anyone else.
