Equal Employment Opportunity Statement
As set forth in its EEO and AA Reaffirmation Statement, Kaiser Permanente’s leadership is committed to equal employment opportunities and our diverse and inclusive workforce. Applicants at all levels will receive consideration of employment based on valid job requirements without regard to race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), age, sexual orientation, national origin, marital status, parental status, ancestry, disability, gender identity, veteran status, genetic information, or any other protected status. All of our personnel actions are administered using the same principles.
Employees and applicants shall not be subjected to harassment, intimidation, threats, coercion or discrimination because they have: (1) filed a complaint; (2) assisted or participated in an investigation, compliance evaluation, hearing or any other activity related to the administration of any federal, state or local law requiring equal employment opportunity; (3) opposed any act or practice made unlawful by any federal, state or local law requiring equal opportunity; or (4) exercised any other right protected by federal, state or local law requiring equal opportunity.
Kaiser Permanente develops written annual affirmative action plans for veterans and individuals with disability. The process includes an audit and reporting system to monitor compliance pursuant to applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations. Affirmative action plans are available for viewing upon request through the local human resources office.
External hires must pass a background check/drug screen. Qualified applicants with arrest and/or conviction records will be considered for employment in a manner consistent with federal and state laws, as well as applicable local ordinances, including but not limited to the San Francisco and Los Angeles Fair Chance Ordinances.
Pay Transparency Provision
Kaiser Permanente, as a federal contractor, will not discharge or in any other manner discriminate against employees or applicants because they have inquired about, discussed, or disclosed their own pay or the pay of another employee or applicant. However, employees who have access to the compensation information of other employees or applicants as a part of their essential job functions cannot disclose the pay of other employees or applicants to individuals who do not otherwise have access to compensation information, unless the disclosure is (a) in response to a formal complaint or charge, (b) in furtherance of an investigation, proceeding, hearing, or action, including an investigation conducted by the employer, or (c) consistent with the contractor's legal duty to furnish information.
At Kaiser Permanente, we will accommodate the needs of any candidate who requests reasonable assistance under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). To request a reasonable accommodation as you navigate the recruitment process visit our Accommodations page.
