The amendment means that all businesses with at least five employees must prepare written whistleblower procedures. The government proposed a limit of 10 workers, but the opposition and supporting parties agreed on a limit of five. The draft amendment was finalized on 6 June 2017. The date of entry into force is July 1st 2017. It is proposed that all regulations regarding whistleblowers are collected in a separate chapter 2A of the Working Environment Act, rather than divided into several chapters as of today. This will make the rules visible and make them more user friendly. It is also suggested that the regulations also apply to contracted workers so that they can report on critical circumstances in the company. This will allow contracted workers to have the same opportunity to detect critical conditions as other employees. On the other hand, they may end up in a more vulnerable situation by notifying the company’s own employees. The amendment also includes a new provision on confidentiality for the employees’ identity. The purpose is to make it safer to notify external authorities to the public authorities.
