Misconduct, Whistleblower Protection and Investigations
MISCONDUCT, WHISTLEBLOWER PROTECTION AND INVESTIGATIONS Heading link
This policy is intended to protect any employee who engages in good faith disclosure of alleged wrongful conduct to a designated university official or public body. More specifically it:
- encourages employees to disclose serious breaches of conduct covered by University policies or law,
- informs employees how allegations of wrongful conduct can be disclosed,
- protects employees from reprisal by adverse employment action as a result of having disclosed wrongful conduct (employees who self-report misconduct are not afforded protection by this policy), and
- provides individuals who believe they have been subject to reprisal with a fair process to seek relief from retaliatory acts.
Nothing in this policy is intended to interfere with legitimate employment decisions.
