A global guide to whistleblowing laws

A global guide to whistleblowing laws

The widespread introduction of legislation protecting the actions of ‘whistleblowers’, and increased public expectations of global corporate accountability, mean that businesses need to adopt a proactive approach to managing allegations or disclosures that point to misconduct within their organisation. Not understanding the law surrounding whistleblowing can be costly for businesses in terms of potential claims as well as damage to reputation.

Whistleblowing is a high priority on international and national anti-corruption agendas, and is continuing to grow in importance, highlighting whistleblowing’s relevance as a corporate governance and regulatory tool.

To help our clients navigate and understand the varying laws relating to whistleblowing, we have produced an online interactive guide which provides a practical overview of the legislation applicable to whistleblowing in 50 jurisdictions around the world.

This interactive guide enables you to

  • Navigate a map of the globe to click on the jurisdiction/s you wish to read about
  • Create and customise your own comparative reports
  • Opt to receive email alerts when the laws change in the jurisdictions of your choice

This is the most extensive guide to whistleblowing laws that has ever been produced.

To request access to the guide, you will need to register to our client knowledge portal - The Institute. You will find our Whistleblowing guide under Cross-border guides.
