Center for Whistleblowers Protection

Center for Whistleblowers Protection was founded in order to help whistleblowers, who are often victims of retaliatory measures.

We need your support. We set up a fund for your donations that go towards supporting whistleblowers financially when they lose their source of income and need to pay for a lawyer or an expert opinion.

Support the Center's work as a central information portal for whistleblowers' rights

We are grateful that Whistlelink supports the work of Center for Whistleblowers Protection!

Contribution by Whistleblowing Solutions AB, Sweden, is enabling us to fully use their application for safe and user-friendly receiving of whistleblowers’ requests, which is of great value to the Center and supports the very core of our main activity. Whistlelink solves our three biggest concerns:

  1. security of the channel for filling of whistleblowers’ requests and safe follow-up communication,
  2. case overview, and
  3. efficiency and security of further case management.

*We are not currently accepting new applications for whistleblower support at the Centre, but we hope that this page will serve as a good information portal for you. Whistleblowers in the Republic of Slovenia are protected by the Whistleblower Protection Act, which was adopted by the National Assembly of the Republic of Slovenia on 23 January 2023.

The Centre was actively involved in the process of expert coordination of the text of this law, and we are pleased that some of our suggestions aimed at effectively helping whistleblowers have been taken into account by the proposer of the law. This law, based on EU Directive 2019/1937, establishes systemic mechanisms for reporting breaches of the applicable rules and for the protection of whistleblowers. The central authority under this law is the Corruption Prevention Commission of the Republic of Slovenia, while a number of other oversight bodies serve as a subordinate external channel. Before reporting to an external channel or to the media, you are advised to check whether there is an internal whistleblower confidant in the relevant organisation and an internal channel for reporting violations and consultation.
