Abstract

This article seeks to explore whether the Irish Protected Disclosures Act 2014 (the “2014 Act”), which has come to be known as the Whistle-blowers' Charter, holds any lessons which may inform future reforms of the immunity programme used to encourage self-reporting of information on certain potential breaches of the Irish Competition Act 2002, as amended (the “2002 Act”).
