Everything your business needs to know about the EU Directive on Whistleblower Protection
Have you heard about the EU Whistleblower Protection Directive?
By December 17, 2021, you can expect this to be transposed as a national law across all EU member states, affecting organisations with 250 employees or more.
The Whistleblower Protection directive aims to protect the safety of corporate whistleblowers as they expose misconduct events. For companies like yours, this is a great opportunity to nurture a “speak up” culture that will help you proactively address breaches and other ethical violations before they become a state-wide PR issue.
This directive brings with it certain management responsibilities too. As you strive to ensure a healthy culture and work environment, privacy concerns must also be taken into account.
To help, here is a complete guide to the EU Directive on Whistleblower Protection and how your business can adapt effectively to comply with it.
