The whistleblowing should refer to irregularities that are in the public interest to be disclosed. The information must therefore concern the public, and not the reporting person's own working or employment conditions.
Individual conditions t may in some cases be of general interest, if, for example, they are about repeated or systematic violations that can be considered unacceptable from a broader societal perspective. Violations of internal regulations such as codes of conduct may in some cases be of general interest.
Whistleblowing may also refer to violations of certain EU rules and Swedish rules that implement or supplement the EU rules. The EU rules covered are listed in Annex 1 to Directive (EU) 2019/1936 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 October 2019 on the protection of persons reporting infringements of Union law.
The reporting person does not need to have actual evidence. Reasonable concerns or suspicions are sufficient.
