Kaiser Permanente has been around for more than 70 years and employs more than 200,000 people in the United States. However, this company has faced serious allegations of employment law violations over the years, including wrongful termination of employees. At Rager & Yoon – Employment Lawyers, our Los Angeles wrongful termination attorneys are here to help if you think you have been unjustly fired by Kaiser Permanente. We will work to determine whether or not you have a wrongful termination claim against the company.
Instances of wrongful termination happen
In 2017, a California woman was awarded $492,000 after a jury determined that she was wrongfully terminated by Kaiser Permanente. In that case, attorneys for the former medical assistant showed that the woman had 12 years of positive job performance reviews. They said that she was terminated so that the company could avoid paying costly medical treatment to her disabled son.
Kaiser Permanente initially offered a $15,000 settlement, but the jury decided on $492,000 for past and future economic damages suffered by the employee.
Kaiser Permanente prides itself on caring for people throughout this country. However, they should be held accountable when they treat their employees poorly. There are various reasons that a Kaiser Permanente employee could face wrongful termination. This could include:
- Discrimination based on sex, age, religion, pregnancy, disability, sexual orientation, etc.
- For reporting safety and health code violations to state or federal agencies.
- Retaliation for reporting discrimination, other violations, requesting ADA accommodations, and more.
