Ehdotus whistleblowing-lainsäädännöksi on julkaistu

Hallitus antoi maanantaina 19.9.2022 jo kuumeisesti odotetun esityksen niin sanotuksi ilmoittajansuojelulaiksi[1] (HE 147/2022), jolla saatetaan Suomessa voimaan whistleblowing-direktiivi ((EU) 2019/1937). Whistleblowing-direktiivin ja ilmoittajansuojelulain keskeisenä tavoitteena on rohkaista työnsä yhteydessä yleisen edun vastaisia rikkomuksia havainneita tai epäileviä henkilöitä ilmoittamaan havainnoistaan. Tätä edistetään ottamalla käyttöön uusi viranomaisten keskitetty ilmoituskanava sekä velvoittamalla valtaosa julkisen ja yksityisen sektorin organisaatioista perustamaan luottamuksellinen sisäinen ilmoituskanava tietyistä yleisen edun kannalta merkityksellisistä väärinkäytöksistä ilmoittamista varten. Lisäksi sääntelyllä suojataan väärinkäytöksestä ilmoittajaa negatiivisilta seuraamuksilta.
