Episode 161 — The European Union Whistleblower Directive
Global companies face a number of challenges and a myriad of regulatory obligations. In December 2019, the EU adopted a directive to promote and protect persons who report violations of law.
Companies will be required to implement compliance reporting channels and provide protection for certain whistleblowers from retaliation. To the extent companies already maintain internal reporting systems may have to modify their programs to meet implementation requirements by member states.
In this Episode, Michael Volkov reviews the EU Whistleblower Directive and the compliance requirements.
