Director Factsheets

This Director Factsheet is Courtesy of McCann FitzGerald

Our latest Director Factsheet, from McCann FitzGerald, looks at a general scheme for an amendment to the Protected Disclosures Act 2014 (the “Act”), which was recently published. The proposed Protected Disclosures (Amendment) Bill 2021 (the “Bill”) is intended to implement into Irish law the Directive on the protection of persons who report breaches of Union law (the “Directive”). 

While the scope of the Directive is limited to disclosures relating to certain areas within the scope of EU law, the proposed content of the Bill extends well beyond this.
