An individual may file a complaint alleging retaliation.  Individuals are protected from retaliation for a variety of activities undertaken in good faith such as filing complaints, cooperating with investigations, or engaging in a wide range of speech or whistle-blowing activities.  Please contact the Office of Equal Opportunity and Access with questions about whether particular activities are protected.

Additionally, no person shall retaliate against an individual for accessing the services of the University Ombuds Office or the Office of Equal Opportunity and Access. This is not intended to create individual or group rights, whether contractual or otherwise, that do not exist under existing law.
