Webinar: increased protection of whistleblowers in Europe

The new EU Directive on whistleblower protection was officially signed by the EU institutions this week and will enter into force 20 days after its publication in the EU official journal.

We are pleased to invite you to our dedicated webinar, during which Freshfields panellists will walk you through the new EU whistleblower protection regime, including:

  • its material and geographical scope;
  • who is protected and how;
  • what member states and businesses will need to do ahead of the 2021 implementation deadline;
  • how the EU regime compares with other legal and regulatory regimes, e.g. the US; and
  • what else to expect.
