Whistleblower Protections

All UAA employees are protected against reprisal due to good faith allegations as required by state and federal regulation. Students are protected against reprisal based on good faith allegations by institutional policy.

  • Students are protected from reprisals arising from good faith reporting under the Regents' policy P09.01.090.
  • Employees are guaranteed protection from reprisal due to good faith allegations by the Alaska Whistleblower Act (AS 39.90.100-150) - see chapter 39.90 Miscellaneous Provisions, Article 2, "Protection for Whistleblower." 
  • The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 provided protections for certain employees of non-federal employers who make specified disclosures relating to possible fraud, waste and/or abuse or Recovery Act funds.
