Hire & Fire employment law podcast – The Swedish Whistleblowing Act

In this edition of Hire & Fire, our employment law experts discuss the new Swedish Whistleblowing Act.

As of 17 July 2022, Swedish companies with 250 or more employees are required to have internal whistleblowing channels in place, according to the new Swedish Whistleblowing Act. As a consequence, the new Act is a hot topic for discussion for Swedish companies and groups.

In the new podcast episode, Jenny Welander Wadström and Alice Göransson discuss practical implications of the new legislation and, in particular, about the ability for companies to share procedures for reporting within a group, the confidentiality requirement and other common practical difficulties companies might face when implementing the channels.
