Mayer Brown Legal Update
While whistleblowing has given rise to legislation since the end of the 1980s in the United States and the end of the 1990s in the United Kingdom, France has only recently caught up by enacting the “Sapin II” Act on December 9, 2016.
A decree of application was published on April 19, 2017 that becomes effective as of January 1, 2018, specifying how employers must implement the new whistleblowing requirements.
