17 December 2021, the EU Directive 2019/1937 of 23 October 2019 on the protection of persons who report breaches of EU law (the “Whistleblower Directive”) will come into force. The purpose of the Directive is to strengthen the enforcement of EU regulation by implementing specific minimum standards for securing a high level of protection for persons reporting on breaches of legislation. 

The is expected to process the current draft legislation on the implementation of the Whistleblower Directive in April 2021 (the “Whistleblower Act”). In its current draft version, the Whistleblower Act requires all public and private employers with 50 employees or more to establish internal whistleblower systems and secure adequate protection of whistleblowers. 

In the following we examine the content and effects of the Whistleblower Act in its current proposed draft form.
