Noting that we see also other potential lines of legal argument to ground legislative action on whistle-blower protection, we argue that Articles 151 and 153(2)(b) TFEU provide a clear and unambiguous basis for EU legislative action to empower employees to report wrongdoing in a framework that provides legal certainty and a common minimum level of legal protection for workers throughout the Union. After all, although the hardships a whistle-blower might have to face may be multifaceted, they almost always start at the workplace.

The final sentence in this para is unnecessary, and misleading; why does it posit that a WB 'might have to face hardship'?

The sentence was included to explain why we chose the "working conditions" legal basis for action at EU level, but I agree that it can sound misleading so have edited it slightly - what do you think now?
