The University of California is proposing extensive revisions to the UC Policy for Protection of Whistleblowers from Retaliation and Guidelines for Reviewing Retaliation Complaints (Whistleblower Protection Policy), which applies to all University employees and all applicants for University employment.
The revisions are intended to improve the administration of the policy and ensure that complaints alleging whistleblower retaliation are processed more expeditiously. The revisions are also designed to make it easier for complainants to understand the process; they clearly outline what complainants need to include when filing a complaint under the policy and describe what happens at each step of the process.
The proposed policy is posted online at http://ucanr.edu/sites/Whistleblower/files/204102.pdf
Employees are invited to provide comments regarding the proposed policy to Robin Sanchez at firstname.lastname@example.org by January 28, 2015.
