The UK may be out of Europe, but many UK organisations still wishing to adopt the latest best practice in whistleblowing, or indeed firms operational across Europe, will be ensuring they are compliant with EU Whistleblowing Directive provisions - due to be implemented by 17 December 2021.

Protect is marking this key date by hosting a webinar 'EU Whistleblowing Directive – why it matters to us in the UK' to tell you what you need to know about the Directive and why it matters to those of us based in the UK.

Topics will include:

- Key changes the Directive will bring and progress on transposition
- Major differences between the Directive and UK whistleblowing legislation (PIDA)
- Why the Directive matters to the UK, and its possible impact on UK organisations
- How organisations’ whistleblowing arrangements can be compliant with the Directive

An introduction by Elizabeth Gardiner, Cheif Executive, Protect.

Alison Sneddon - Senior Associate, GQ Littler 
Ida Nowers - Law & Policy Coordinator, Whistleblowing International Network 
Nneka Egbuji - Trainee Solicitor, Protect
