With the Whistleblower Directive, European legislators have determined that all companies with more than 250 employees must provide reporting channels by December 17th, 2021, which enable employees and third parties to report violations of the law in the company. This also while protecting their own identity and without the whistleblower having to fear subsequent sanctions.
With SGP Lumen, SGP Rechtsanwälte has developed a digital whistleblower system that fully complies with European requirements. Violations of European and German law are recorded, including in particular:
If you cannot find a suitable information platform in your company, whistleblowers should contact the media, the public and law enforcement authorities directly. This is the worst option for companies, as it can damage their image and result in the direct imposition of fines.
