13 December 2022 12:00 - 15:00

"Four EU countries are now one step away from being taken to court for failing to pass strong rights for whistleblowers", Belgium being one of them. The country has already some whistleblower protection however, the EU Whistleblower Directive goes far beyond the current legislation.
