Slovakia – Whistleblower Protection

Slovakia’s “Act on Certain Measures Related to the Reporting of Anti-social Activities” protects whistleblowers in the public and private sectors. It is one of the few laws in the world that provides preemptive protections from retaliation in the workplace.

Whistleblowers whose reports contribute to final rulings in criminal or administrative cases are eligible for rewards of up to 50 times the minimum wage.
