The EU Whistleblowing Directive: Blowing the whistle means added compliance for employers
The Protected Disclosures (Amendment) Bill 2022 (the Bill) was recently published and is currently making its way through the Irish legislative process. The Bill has been introduced to transpose the EU Whistleblowing Directive. Once enacted, it will extend the scope of the Protected Disclosures Act 2014 and will mean added compliance for employers.
In this publication we explore the changes that are proposed under the Bill.
