EU Whistleblowing Directive – Czechia
Last update 19 April 2023
Whistleblowers protection already in place
There is currently no law on whistleblowing and whistleblowers protection implemented in Czechia.
Organizations are not obliged to set up internal reporting channels and there is no penality for the absence of a whistleblowing system, except for some sectors such as the financial sector.
Current implementation status
A draft law transposing the Directive into national law was approved by the Czech Government in February 2021.
With the introduction of new Members of Parliament after the election in October 2021, the process had to start over again.
The draft bill went through its second reading in the legislative process on April 4th, 2023. The third and final reading is anticipated to happen sometime between the latter half of April and the first half of May 2023. After the reading is completed, the draft bill must also receive approval from the Senate. This entire process is estimated to take an additional one or two months.
The final draft for the law proposal remains to be available.
In anticipation, you can evaluate your reporting system in place and highlight areas of improvement with our self-assessment template.
