Kaiser Permanente is a large employer in our area. Though they have been around for more than 70 years, they have faced constant criticism for the way they treat their employees. With more than 200,000 workers across the nation, Kaiser Permanente has faced many claims of wrongful termination, along with other serious employment violations. At The Rager Law Firm, our Los Angeles wrongful termination lawyers want to discuss what you can do if you think you have a case against Kaiser Permanente.
Even though Kaiser Permanente is a large company that is supposed to be dedicated to caring for the health and well-being of citizens in this country, there are times when they have wrongfully terminated their employees. Perhaps this was most clearly evidenced by a 2017 case in which a California state jury awarded $492,000 to a former medical assistant who had accused Kaiser Permanente of terminating her in order to avoid paying costly medical treatment for her disabled son. In that case, Kaiser Permanente had offered a $15,000 settlement that was rejected by the employee. Attorneys for the wrongfully fired woman showed that she had received positive performance evaluations for 11 years prior to being fired.
