Prepare. Respond. Emerge Stronger.
Whistleblowers represent a key source of information because they usually inform about potential breach of rules, which might result in damages to the whole society. Nevertheless, suspicions are often unreported due to the whistleblowers' fear of adverse actions taken against them by their employers. This reporting procedure is generally known as “whistleblowing”.
The European Union thus decided to do more in the area of protection of the whistleblowers. In October 2019, the European Directive No. 2019/1937 on protection of persons who report breaches of Union law was adopted. This directive defines new minimal rules for the protection of whistleblowers and should be transposed to the Czech law in two years at the latest.
