Next step for a whistleblowing regulation in the Czech Republic

Company: TaylorWessing e|n|w|c advokáti v.o.s.

The Czech Government introduced a new draft legislation transposing the EU Whistleblower Directive. The current proposal, which is the second draft, will probably be amended again during the legislative procedure. Legal professionals fear that the Czech Parliament will not be able to pass the bill within the transposition period as parliamentary elections are scheduled for October 2021.

In this article, we focus on four major issues:

  • Definition of legal entities obligated to establish internal reporting channels (this now means companies with at least 25 workers)
  • Material scope (now covered are all criminal and administrative delicts)
  • External reporting to the Ministry of Justice
  • Summary of penalties 

Stay tuned for more articles, as we continue to focus on compliance and whistleblowing issues, especially during the ongoing legislative procedure.
