Kaiser Permanente was founded in 1945 by an industrialist and a physician. However, while Kaiser Permanente has been around for more than 70 years, they have constantly been criticized for their level of care and the way they treat their employees. With over 11 million health plan members and more than 200,000 employees nationwide, Kaiser Permanente is rife with claims of wrongful termination, sexual harassment, retaliation, and discrimination.
In fact, a California court in 2017 awarded $492,000 to a former employee who accused Kaiser Permanente of firing her so they could avoid having to pay for her son’s medical bill. Nonetheless, the verdict surpassed the healthcare initial offer of $15,000.
