The University of California is soliciting employee comments on proposed changes to the Whistleblower Protection Policy (WPP), which applies to academic and non-academic (all Laboratory) employees. In summary, the proposed changes:
- – Ensure that complaints filed under the WPP will be processed within 18 months, as required by an amendment to the California Whistleblower Protection Act
- – Address difficulties in the administration of the WPP and better clarify the process, improving the experience for complainants.
The proposed policy, along with explanatory material, is available on UCOP’s website. Send comments on the proposed draft to RIIO@lbl.gov no later than June 2, 2014.
