Yikes! Did you hear the one about how a Kaiser employee decided to share with about 180K fellow employees the rather stunning projection that Kaiser will lose 7 billion dollars over the next couple years? [Original source: SF Chronicle]
Kaiser employee Justin Deal says he wanted to jump start the company's efforts to eliminate waste. He considers himself a sort of internal whistleblower and can't understand why on earth he's be put on administrative leave.
I wonder what other steps he took before deciding a mass email to all employees was part of the solution?
I guess I could hear more of the story, but this reminds me of those stories about people getting "fired for blogging." In most, not all, cases, thsoe employees were actually fired for doing something stupid. The blog was just the channel.
Without more info indicating the contrary I'd have to say this sounds like one of those cases.
