ACC Advocates for Stronger Legal Professional Privilege in European Whistleblower Scenarios

ACC Position: 

In late May, ACC offered comments in response to the European Commission’s public consultation on whistleblower protection. ACC encouraged the Commission to consider the important roles corporate compliance systems and in-house counsel play in creating environments that encourage employees to speak out in cases of corporate misconduct. Also, ACC urged the Commission to not address whistleblower protections in a vacuum, but rather as part of a broader program to incentivize strong corporate compliance programs throughout Europe.
