  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: whistleblowing; burden of proof; retaliatory dismissal; discrimination

The essay examines the legislative protection of the whistleblower introduced by Act n. 179/17, focusing on a specific aspect, namely the rule on the burden of proof. As Act no. 179 establishes a reversed burden of proof in favour of the employee, the analysis compares this rules with those otherwise applicable in the case of retaliatory, discriminatory and unfair dismissals. After highlighting differences, systemic issues, and possible risks, the author proposes some interpretative solutions.
