Digital whistleblower system to implement the whistleblower guideline

Implementation obligation for companies with 250 or more employees since December 17th, 2021
for companies with 50 or more employees from December 17, 2023

Need

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:

  • Antitrust law
  • Bribery, corruption
  • Data protection, IT security, environmental protection, health
  • Labor Law and Safety Law

Benefits

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.
