Healthcare employees encouraged to report violations

When Californians are hurt or sick, they go to various healthcare facilities to determine what is wrong and to try and heal from their injuries and illness. In order to ensure this happens, there are many different regulations that healthcare facilities must follow. These regulations try to ensure that the facility is clean and the patients are safe.

However, from time to time, these facilities do not follow all the regulations for a variety of reasons. Many times it is based on financial reasons because some regulations cost these facilities money. It is also hard for the various agencies that regulate healthcare facilities to know whether these facilities are following all the regulations all the time. Therefore, they need to rely on the employees at these facilities to report when there are violations.

If these employees report violation it could cost the facility even more money though, which could upset the owners of the facility. They may retaliate against the employee as a punishment or to discourage others from doing the same thing.

However, this is against the law as well. Proving it can be difficult at times though so the law states that there is a presumption that any negative treatment of an employee within 120 days of reporting a violation is retaliation.

There are many healthcare facilities in California and all of them must follow the various regulations to ensure the safety of their patients. When they do not follow them, patients can be at risk. Healthcare employees are encouraged to report violations so this does not happen. These employees are also protected against retaliation from their employers.

If the employer does retaliate, they may be required to compensate the employee as well as pay fines. Experienced attorneys understand employees' rights and may be able to help protect them.
