How (legally) secure is your whistleblowing solution?
We offer you a customised digital whistleblower system that protects your company from misconduct and helps you to act in compliance with the law. By way of the lawyer’s obligation to secrecy and a state-of-the-art digital platform, we offer you absolute security and anonymity at the highest level.
According to the EU Whistleblowing Directive 2019 /1937, whistleblowers must be able to trust that they will remain anonymous in the company if they submit reports. In addition, full compliance with all important requirements regarding the reporting of abuse must be ensured in order to avoid reputational damage or financial and legal risks.
The Directive is to be transposed in national law by the Member States of the EU by 17.12.2021 and, respectively, by 17.12.2023 for smaller companies with up to 249 employees; and among other things, it provides for a three-stage reporting system:
- Internal reporting channels
- External reporting channels to authorities
- Publication of information
When establishing an internal reporting system, other legal areas, such as labour law, criminal law, etc., are also affected and must be considered in addition to the regulations of the national transposition act. Our lawyers bundle the entire range of expertise that is required to implement your internal reporting system and to successfully implement the resulting legal steps. With our Schindhelm Whistleblowing Solution, we are happy to help you comply with all important whistleblowing regulations regarding data protection, compliance & corporate governance.
