16C.045 REPORTING OF VIOLATIONS.
A state employee who discovers evidence of violation of laws or rules governing state
contracts is encouraged to report the violation or suspected violation to the employee's supervisor,
the commissioner or the commissioner's designee, or the legislative auditor. The legislative
auditor must report to the Legislative Audit Commission if there are multiple complaints about
the same agency. The auditor's report to the Legislative Audit Commission under this section
must disclose only the number and type of violations alleged. An employee making a good
faith report under this section is covered by section
, prohibiting the employer from
discriminating against the employee.
