The final study of the “WhistlePro” project is now published

Workplace Whistleblowers' Protection in the V4 countries, France and Slovenia (WhistlePro)

With the Faculty of Law’s (Department of Labour Law and Social Security) participation, the  final study volume was published within an international cooperation: „Workplace Whistleblowers' Protection in the V4 countries, France and Slovenia (WhistlePro)”.

The project focuses on the protection of workers who reveal the irregularities or breaches of law in their organisations, both in the public and private sector (whistleblowing). The main goal of the project is to develop the model of the effective protection of whistleblowers in all the V4 countries, especially taking into consideration the obligation of all the EU Member States to implement the Directive (EU) 2019/1937 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 October 2019 on the protection of persons who report breaches of Union law by 17 December 2021.

The project is a co-financed research by the Governments of Czechia, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia through Visegrad Grants from International Visegrad Fund (ID 21930021). The mission of the fund is to advance ideas for sustainable regional cooperation in Central Europe.

The head of the Hungarian branch of the research and the co-author of the volume is Prof. Dr. Attila Kun. The coordinator of the project and the publisher of the volume is the University of Lodz in Poland, and the other partners in addition to KRE Faculty of Law are Charles University in Prague, University of Maribor in Slovenia, University of Trnava in Trnava, Slovakia and University of Tours in France.
