The Directive (EU) 2019/1937 on the Protection of "WHISTLEBLOWERS"

On April 16th 2019 the European Parliament adopted, at the first reading, the Proposal for a Directive of the Parliament and of the Council on the protection of "Whistleblowers". During the last quarter of last year (23rd October 2019) this proposal was finally approved, with slight changes, through the DIRECTIVE (EU) 2019/1937 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND THE COUNCIL on the protection of persons who report breaches of Union law (hereinafter: the Directive).

This Directive becomes an excellent model for all specialists who work within companies or governments located in the European Union (EU), or who are specialized in compliance issues.

In this article the ABL Compliance Unit carries out a succint nalysis of the most important points of this Directive; as well as on the confidentiality protection measures; non retaliation of the informant; the use of internal, external and public disclosure channels among other topics that we consider of great interest to any employee, entity or person interested in delving deeper into the topic.
