About this White paper

The Danish Whistleblower Protection Law (Lov om beskyttelse af whistleblowere) was published in the country on 24 June 2021. Like all other members of the European union, Denmark is required to transpose the EU Whistleblower Protection Directive into national law. It was the first country to do so, thus obliging all employers, both private and public, with 50 employees or more to set up an internal whistleblower system through which employees can raise concerns.
