Whistleblowing Directive: Challenges and opportunities for employers

The implementation of Whistleblowing Directive (EU) 2019/1937 is expected to boost the creation of  reporting channels to sound the alert on wrongdoings within public and private companies across EU Member States.

The interplay of pre-existing national laws and cultural and political circumstances across the CEE countries, however, has made implementation of the directive a lengthy and  highly debated process.

In their newest video discussion, Wolf Theiss’ employment law experts from four jurisdictions, Hristina Dzhevlekova (Bulgaria), Adelina Iftime-Blagean (Romania), Anna Schwamberger (Austria) and Zuzana Hodonova (Slovakia), talk about their experience related to the transposition of key elements of this new legislation, including who it applies to, how to create internal reporting channels, and the strict terms and confidentiality standards, as well as the opportunities the whistleblowing legislation may bring to companies.
