Czech companies are directly impacted by the strengthening of EU whistleblower protection requirements. Under the current Bill, legal entities in the private and public sectors are required to implement secure internal reporting channels, establish procedures for receiving notifications, ensure the confidentiality of the identities of whistleblowers and set follow-up deadlines. The Bill is based on EU Directive 2019/1937, which states the minimum requirements and is currently in the process of being implemented into Czech legislation.
The Bill was approved by the government on 1 February 2021, and it stipulates an obligation for defined entities to introduce an internal whistleblowing system by 31 March 2022.
