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.
