Yes, but in this case the obligations under the Act on the Protection of Whistleblowers do not apply to the settlement, e.g. to inform the whistleblower of the receipt of the report or to inform the whistleblower of the outcome of the investigation.

What is whistleblower protection?

A whistleblower is protected from retaliation – any conduct related to the whistleblower’s work that may cause harm to the whistleblower. In the case of an anonymous report, protection applies only from the moment the identity of the informant becomes known.
