V RESPONDENT: Kaiser Foundation Health Plan l
W CHARGE OF DISCRIMINATION SUBMITTED BY FERNANDO M. DAROSA AGAINST .
KAISER FOUNDATION HEALTH PLAN, 3801 HOWE STREET, OAKLAND, CALIFORNLA
94611. —_ I _·-` -· - —-
On or about May 19, 2000, I was hired b_y Kaiser Foundation Health Plan ("Kaiser"), On or
February 3, 2006, I received notice in the mail that Kaiser had temiinated by employment, allegedly fg
for job abandonment. I have worked continuously for Kaiser since May 19, 2000. During calendar
years 2004 and 2005, I worked more than 1250 hours with Kaiser.
For a number of years, I have experienced difficulty staying awake. ln July 2005, I was diagnosed
with narcolepsy. My treating physician has prescribed medicine for me; however, my treating Q;
physician has not determined an effective combination of drugs to relieve my problem with
narcolepsy. In any event, in about July 2005, I told Kaiser of my medical condition, and I asked
Kaiser to lower the room temperature to help me stay awake. Kaiser objected to lowering the room
temperature. Indeed, Kaiser did not offer me an accommodation for my physical condition. {
My treating physician_took me off work in July 2005 until about August 22, 2005; in addition,
‘ my treating physician took me off work because of my serious medical condition intermittently from j-2
September through and including December 2005. I required additional time off work in J anuary ig
I 2006, because of my serious medical condition. On none of these occasions, did Kaiser tell me that
I was eligible for family medical leave. In addition, as a result of being off work to care for my own
serious medical condition, Kaiser terminated my employment, claiming that I-had abandoned my j ob.
I believe that Kaiser terminated my employment because I needed FMLA leave and because
I havephysical disability (narcolepsy). -
I declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United States that the forgoing is true and
correct.
