Please see the annual report to the Governor relating to claims under the Whistleblower Act.
An employee who alleges retaliation for disclosing information protected under the State Employee Protection Act (commonly referred to as the "Whistleblower Act") may appeal to the Board within 10 days of the disciplinary action that allegedly violated the Whistleblower Act. The employee must complete both the Whistleblower Complaint Form and the Consolidated Dispute/Appeal form. The department must respond to the Whistleblower Complaint within 45 days of the complaint being filed with the Board. If the employee does not otherwise have a constitutional or statutory right to a hearing, the case will be subject to the discretionary review process.
