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.
The draft bill has then been delayed, and the agenda remained unclear about the steps for implementation and whether the draft law will be passed before the official deadline.
Progress have been made with the successful vote of the draft bill on May 12th, 2021, but the legislative process was slowed again afterwards as the necessary parliamentary discussion of the law in the Committee on Constitutional and Legal Affairs has not been timetabled on the agenda.
With the introduction of new Members of Parliament after the election in October 2021, the process had to start over again.
The new law is expected to be introduced in the second half of 2022.
The final draft for the law proposal remains to be available.
