We are an independent state institution with a nationwide presence based in Bratislava. Our mission is to protect whistleblowers who report unfair practices they have encountered in the course of their work.
Whistleblowers may face bullying, dismissal or other negative action from their employer, supervisor or even colleagues. Our Office is here to stop these practices and support courageous and responsible workers.
Whistleblowers are protected by the Whistleblower Protection Act, which also established our Office. The current president of the Office is Zuzana Dlugošová.
What is anti-social activity?
The law classifies all crimes, misdemeanors or administrative offences, primarily conduct that has a negative impact on society, as anti-social activity. Our mission is to protect the public interest, which is why we focus primarily on communications that go beyond the interests of the individual.
For example, if a manufacturer deliberately misleads its customers about the composition of a product because it is harmful to health, this is a threat to the public interest. That is because the sale of an unsafe product can have a serious impact on a wide group of people.
Reporting anti-social activity is beneficial to us all. It helps to avoid wasting public resources and, in some cases, even to save lives.
