Mr. Azadian has successfully litigated dozens of wrongful termination, retaliation, and discrimination actions against Kaiser Permanente, including its affiliated entities Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, Kaiser Foundation Hospitals, Southern California Permanente Medical Group (SCPMG), and The Permanente Medical Group (TPMG). He has represented physicians, surgeons, nurses, psychologists, technicians, IT professionals, and health-plan administrators in Kaiser employment lawsuits. He has also handled disputes arising under the Southern California Permanente Medical Group Partnership Agreement.
Wrongful termination, retaliation, and discrimination actions against Kaiser require an in-depth knowledge of Kaiser’s structure, arbitration clauses, union issues, and common tactics used by Kaiser in wrongfully terminating employees such as charting issues, HIPAA compliance, performance improvement plans, and including the employee in a layoff with other employees. Knowledge of Kaiser’s centralized compliance, human resources, progressive discipline policy (Levels 1-5), and Kaiser Permanente’s Principles of Responsibility is also very important in successfully litigating wrongful termination actions against Kaiser.
In addition, California provides healthcare professionals with unique protections against retaliation due to complaining about patient care or other safety issues. For example, California Health & Safety Code Section 1278.5 provides protections for healthcare workers who are retaliated against after complaining about suspected unsafe patient care conditions. Similarly, California Business & Professions Code Section 510 provides protections for licensed healthcare workers (including nurses) who are retaliated against for complaining about inadequate patient care. California Business & Professions Code Section 2056 provides these same protections to doctors and surgeons.
