  • Abstract

      A worker involved in the EU-funded ‘Turkey III’ project acted as a whistleblower, alerting to potential passive corruption with an audit contract, at a time when Belgian law had not implemented Directive (EU) 2019/1937 on the protection of persons who report breaches of Union law (the ‘Whistleblowing Directive’). The Labour Tribunal of Brussels recognized her whistleblower status and deemed her dismissal for serious cause retaliatory and so manifestly unreasonable.
