Whistleblowing protection laws

New legislation to protect whistleblowers from retaliation and provide channels for reporting wrongdoing were passed, or came into effect, in five countries during 2014: Bosnia and Herzegovina, India, Ireland, Serbia and Slovakia. Only 2011, when seven countries passed new laws, has seen more activity in this field.

These laws mark the continuation of a wave that began in 2010. Since then, at least 20 countries have introduced new laws into their statutes. And there are currently just as many countries considering new legislation.
