Final chance to let the Commission know that whistleblowers need EU-wide protection

(29 May 2017) Today is your last chance to contribute to the European Commission’s public consultation on whistleblowers protection. It is still not too late to tell the Commission that we need EU-wide whistleblowers protection measures.

More than 64,000 people have signed a petition calling for broad-based horizontal legislation, covering whistleblowing in its widest sense. Click on link for petition details, it is still not too late for you to sign it

Whistleblower protection is in most cases a workers’ right issue. At the same time, not all whistleblowers are employees. Therefore, broad protection should be ensured covering also other than employees.

We call on the European Commission to urgently take action on bringing forward proposals on EU-wide legislation on whistleblower protection with a broad scope of groups and areas of activities protected.
