Whistleblowing Compliance_

Full service for the legally compliant implementation of the Whistleblower Protection Act.

The EU Whistleblowing Directive obliges companies to set up a reporting centre for whistleblowers. Our digital whistleblower system offers you a full-service solution for the legally compliant implementation of your new legal obligations.

  • Companies with 50 or more employees need to establish a whistleblowing reporting center by 17 December 2023 – a large number of companies are subject to this obligation regardless of the number of employees. We will be happy to advise you on whether your company falls within the scope of the Whistleblower Protection Act.
  • For companies with more than 250 employees, the obligation exists since 2 July 2023.
  • Non-compliance and infringements can result in high fines of up to 50,000 euros as well as reputational damage for your company – in exceptional cases, fines of up to 500,000 euros are also possible.
