EU Whistleblower Protection Directive – WhistleB launches Resource Center

Share

EU has passed a law that will require many of Europe’s public and private companies and organisations to implement systems that enable people to report suspected illegal activities while protecting their identities. WhistleB's newly launched Resource Center is established for organisations to get support and expert advice to meet the new requirements.

Whistleblower channels will need to comply with a specific set of requirements on security, response times, data protection and more. The WhistleB Resource Centre will be continuously updated on the adaption of the directive to national legislations.        

"The Europe-wide legal obligation to protect a whistleblower’s identity may be new but safeguarding those who dare to blow the whistle has always been at the heart of our secure system, says Co-Founder Karin Henriksson at WhistleB."

According to the new law, whistleblowers will be protected even if they decide to report externally. Organisations are therefore advised to do everything they can to encourage employees to report internally, so that they have a chance to address and correct matters within their own walls. Employees and other stakeholders are more likely to report if they can remain anonymous, trust the security of the system, and know that their messages will be taken seriously and handled by knowledgeable teams. These are some of the principles behind the requirements of the EU Whistleblower Protection directive, but they can be complex for organisations to unravel.

WhistleBs tjänst: ett litet steg för ert företag, men ett stort steg för näringslivet21.1.2020 16:18:14 CETPressmeddelande

2019. Året då världen firade 50-årsdagen av mänsklighetens första steg på en annan planet. Det var också året då en ung svensk tonåring startade en global rörelse för att bekämpa klimatförändringarna. Inom visselblåsning antog EU ett nytt, avgörande direktiv för skydd av visselblåsare som i princip gör det till ett lagkrav för företag att vara etiska.
