Misconduct, Whistleblower Protection and Investigations

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.
