Whistleblower Retaliation Under the EU Whistleblower Protection Directive: The Reverse Burden of Proof
Most companies have an anti-retaliation policy, ranging from 16 words to 16 pages. However, would this meet the new requirements of the EU Whistleblower Protection Directive – which has a “reverse burden of proof” for retaliation? This means that, for the first time, it is no longer up to the individual to prove retaliation but, instead, the company must prove that they did not retaliate; failure to do so will result in penalties, and also reputational damage. Join this webinar to learn how to prepare for this requirement, how to implement anti-retaliation measures, and how to detect retaliation throughout the whistleblowing process using some new and novel techniques.
