Yesterday evening the Belgian Parliament approved the draft bill transposing the EU Whistleblower Directive into national legislation. Companies with 50 employees and more will have to provide an internal reporting channel and procedure for whistleblowing. Whistleblowers must be protected against retaliation. The protection applies not only to employees but also to persons who blow the whistle in any other capacity.
