Transparency International has called for better legal protection of whistle-blowers at the workplace in Switzerland.
In its latest report, the non-governmental organisation said it was crucial to introduce the right to challenge wrongful termination of work contracts for employees who exposed allegedly illegal or dishonest activities of a company or a government.
The watchdog organisation says a regulation for federal government employees introduced last year could be extended to cover all employees of the administration.
It also reiterates its call for increased transparency over the funding of political parties – accusing the government and parliament to underestimate the impact of corruption on the state and society.
