Whistle-blower protection comes to the UC

As reported in the SF Chronicle, the California legislature approved whistle-blower protection for UC employees. The bill was introduced by Leland Yee, (D-San Francisco) and now needs to be signed by the Governator himself.

Apparently until now UC was exempted from whistle-blower protection as long as it conducted its own investigation, which is surprising. What is not surprising is that UCOP had opposed the measure.
