    UK law has granted protection for those who raise concerns of potential wrongdoing in the workplace (whistleblowers) since 1999 through the Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998.

    The EU, when considering what its own whistleblowing protection laws should look like, recognised that the UK already grants comprehensive protection for whistleblowers.
