Retaliation for Whistleblowing

Summary
Retaliation for Whistleblowing

The California Whistleblower Protection Act, as well as the California State University (CSU) policy, prohibit retaliation against any person who has reported an improper governmental activity or a significant threat to health or safety.

Under Executive Order 1058, employees, former employees, and applicants for employment who believe they have been retaliated against for being a whistleblower may file a complaint of retaliation with their manager or supervisor, or the campus administrator responsible for administering EO 1058, within twelve (12) months of the alleged act of retaliation.
