2021 - A landmark for
whistleblowing in the EU

Five keys to an effective whistleblower programme

By the end of 2021, employees in the EU will be protected from whistleblowing retaliation by virtue of Directive (EU) 2019/1937 of the European Parliament. All employers will be obliged to provide safe reporting channels and procedures, and protection will cover not only employees, but other stakeholders such as job applicants, ex-employees, journalists and individuals who support the original whistleblower.

For companies with at least 250 workers the Directive applies from 17 December 2021 and for employers with between 50 and 249 employees, the Directive will apply from 17 December 2023. With the deadline approaching, employers are advised to start preparing for the implementation of the Directive now.
