Reporting Improper Activities (Whistleblower)

The University of California has a responsibility to conduct its affairs ethically and in compliance with the law. If you suspect that a UC employee is engaged in improper governmental activities, you should know that UC has policies on "blowing the whistle" and protection from retaliation. 

Improper governmental activities include:  

  • Violations of state or federal laws or regulations (e.g., corruption, malfeasance, bribery, theft or misuse of government property, fraud, coercion, conversion);
  • Economic waste; and
  • Gross misconduct, gross incompetence or gross inefficiency.

The University prohibits retaliation against employees who in good faith, report suspected ethical, legal or policy violations.
