ECS publishes White Paper on Whistle-blower Protection in the Swiss Private Sector

In its White Paper, Ethics and Compliance Switzerland (ECS) analyses the current legislative project on whistleblower protection in the Swiss private sector (“Teilrevision des Obligationenrechts Schutz bei Meldung von Unregelmässigkeiten am Arbeitsplatz, vom 21. September 2018“).

The aim of ECS’ White Paper is to independently assess the legislative proposal of the Swiss Government in terms of its effectiveness in protecting whistleblowers and its concordance with key international standards and recent legislation, such as the French Loi Sapin II and the EU directive on whistleblower protection (Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council on the protection of persons reporting on breaches of Union law).
