When I speak out, am I still bound by professional secrecy or by employer loyalty obligations?


Are you reluctant to make a disclosure because you feel that you owe your employer loyalty? The Act to facilitate the disclosure of wrongdoings relating to public bodies protects whistleblowers. You are allowed to disclose information you would not otherwise be authorized to give out.

The only exception: the exemption from professional secrecy does not apply to attorney-client or notary-client privilege.

See the How am I protected? section to know more about protection against reprisal.
