Better protection of whistle-blowers: new EU-wide rules to kick in in 2021

Mon, 07 Oct 2019

The Council of the European Union has adopted new rules on whistle-blowers protection which will require the creation of safe channels for reporting both within an organisation - private or public - and to public authorities. It will also provide a high level of protection to whistle-blowers against retaliation, and require national authorities to adequately inform citizens and train public officials on how to deal with whistle-blowing.
