The subject of whistleblowing has become one of very great significance in Irish employment law in recent years, a significance that is now reflected in the Protected Disclosures Act 2014 (hereafter referred to in this Report as the "2014 Act"), which came into force in Ireland in the summer of 2014. This new regime provides comprehensive protection for whistleblowers across all sectors of the economy, replacing what had hitherto been a piecemeal, sector-specific patchwork of protections that left significant lacunae in the legal regime. Accordingly, this Report offers analysis of the new legislative regime in Irish law and its implications for the development of an entirely new whistleblowing regime in this jurisdiction.
