Introduction of the EU Whistleblower Directive

In December 2021, the EU unveiled the Whistleblower Directive.

The Directive ensures the minimum standards of protection are in place to protect those who Speak Up about breaches of EU laws from retaliation or recrimination.


Which organizations are affected?

As of December 2021, all organizations with more than 250 employees working in the EU must comply with the EUWD, including those headquartered outside of the Union but with operations in EU jurisdictions.

Why is the Whistleblower Directive necessary?

Whistleblowers in the EU were considered to have insufficient protection against retaliation from their employers, such as dismissal, harassment, or even physical harm.

Why should employers be concerned?

It may be challenging for organizations that operate cross-border to implement the Directive, as they must take into account both new and existing whistleblowing laws across multiple regions.
