Whistleblowing and notifier protection: obligations and implementation

Date: 15 April 2021
Time: 09:00 - 10:30

  

  • Summary

Fraud, discrimination, bullying and other illegal activities have recently demanded more and more attention in society. Proper management of their reporting can help companies significantly, especially by letting management or company owners learn of issues as soon as possible, which they can then address effectively. This will also prevent the notifier from turning directly to public authorities.

Under the new Whistleblower Protection Act, companies will be required to have procedures in place to receive and process notifications, train employees and ensure that whistleblowers' personal data is protected by the end of March 2022. The new obligations will affect virtually all companies.

We cordially invite you to a webinar, where we will introduce you to the new obligations regarding the introduction of channels for reporting infringements and the protection of whistleblowers. As part of the training, we will explain to you what the new obligations mean in practice and we will propose an effective solution for managing them without threatening sanctions. We will also describe how to make the best use of these new responsibilities for the benefit of the company and how to obtain information on risks or even fraud and how to respond to them in a timely manner.

 

Content:

  • What is whistleblowing, and how are whistleblowers protected?
