Whistleblower Protection National Regulations
The scope of protection for whistleblowers around the world varies widely by region. Even within single countries, regulations often differ depending on company size and whether whistleblowers are employed in the private or public sector.
Some regulatory frameworks, such as the EU Whistleblower Protection Directive, aim to strengthen protections by defining minimum standards of protection that must be delivered in regional laws.
These laws then dictate corporate company policies – but many businesses struggle to implement effective reporting programs because they don’t fully understand their region’s requirements.
