HOME THE GROUP WHISTLEBLOWING
With Law No. 190/2012, whistleblowing was introduced into the Consolidated Text on Public Employment under Article 54-bis headed “Protection of public employees who report crimes”.
In 2017, with Legislative Decree No. 179/2017, whistleblowing was also extended to the private sector, ensuring fair treatment and equal protection for both public and private employees.
