Retaliation against whistleblowers is a serious and worsening problem. According to ECI’s 2021 Global Business survey, 61% of reporters experienced retaliation globally. Couple this with the EU Whistleblower Directive’s ‘reverse burden of proof’ for companies to substantiate protection of whistleblowers, and the call to action is clear: Shift our mindset on retaliation and introduce anti-retaliation measures that (actually) work.
