Criminal sanctions resulting from whistleblower complaints


BARO ALTO ACADEMY is an innovative, hands-on educational initiative led by Baro Alto’s team of lawyers and the students in the Master 2 DFE course (corporate law and taxation) at the University of Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne. This year, their work was focused on criminal sanctions against company managers and took the form of five interviews.

In this interview, BARO ALTO ACADEMY reviews the European directive of 23 October 2019, to be transposed into French law before 17 December 2021, and presents the new whistleblower regulations.

Caroline Joly would like to thank Gil Gaspar RODRIGUES (student interviewed), Mathilde GONÇALVES, Salome MARTY and Victoria CONSTAS for their commitment to this project, as well as the magazine Le Monde Du Droit (LMDD).
