AS 39.90.110. Limitation to Protections.

(a) A person is not entitled to the protections under AS 39.90.100 - 39.90.150 unless the person

(1) reasonably believes that the information reported is or is about to become a matter of public concern; and

(2) reports the information in good faith.

(b) A person is entitled to the protections under AS 39.90.100 - 39.90.150 only if the matter of public concern

(1) is not the result of conduct by the person seeking protection; or

(2) is the result of conduct by the person that was required by the person's employer.

(c) As part of its written personnel policy, a public employer may require that, before an employee initiates a report on a matter of public concern under AS 39.90.100 , the employee shall submit a written report concerning the matter to the employer. However, the employee is not required to submit a report if the employee

(1) reasonably believes that reports to the employer will not result in prompt action to remedy the matter of public concern;

(2) believes with reasonable certainty that the activity, policy, or practice is already known to one or more supervisors;

(3) reasonably believes that an emergency is involved; or

(4) reasonably fears reprisal or discrimination as a result of disclosure.
