Law 21592, of August 21, 2023, which establishes a Protection Statute in favor of the complainant

Country: Chile
The purpose of this law is to establish a legal framework that protects whistleblowers who report violations in the public sector, providing a reporting channel, protection measures, and mechanisms to address possible retaliation. In addition, it expands its scope to certain non-profit entities and companies with state participation, and also makes the complaint applicable against private individuals and institutions that receive tax funds by permanent laws, as a subsidy or contribution from the State, under the conditions that this legal body itself determines.
