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.

Hur visselblåsning inom idrotten stöder rättvist, säkert och lagligt spel9.8.2019 13:46:07 CESTPressmeddelande

Oavsett om vi är utövare, ledare, åskådare, sponsorer eller supportrar, så berör idrottsvärlden många människors liv på ett eller annat sätt. På idrottsarenan bygger barn självkänsla, lag skapar band som leder till långvariga vänskapsförhållanden och ärligt spel lärs ut, som kan övergå till nytta för samhället. Och ändå är idrotten en sektor som inte är fri från oetiskt beteende. Vi har läst om skandaler i samband med uppgjorda matcher, korruption, sexuella trakasserier, dopning och ojämlikhet, från mutor vid tilldelning av värdskap för högprofilerade internationella evenemang till barn som farit illa i en lokal klubb. I den här bloggen tittar vi på hur visselblåsning verkligen behövs för att hålla idrotten fläckfri och säker.

How whistleblowing in sports supports fair, safe and legal play9.8.2019 13:42:16 CESTPress release

Whether we play, lead, spectate, sponsor or support, the world of sports touches many people’s lives in one way or another. In the sports arena, children establish self-esteem, teams build bonds that lead to long-lasting friendships and a sense of fair play is learnt that can spill over to societal good. And yet, sport is a sector that is not free of unethical behaviour. We have read about scandals related to match-fixing, corruption, sexual harassment, doping and inequality, from bribery in the awarding of high-profile international event hosting to a child being abused in a local club. In this blog we look at how whistleblowing is invaluable to keeping sports clean and safe.

Cómo la denuncia de irregularidades en los deportes apoya el juego limpio, seguro y legal9.8.2019 13:35:28 CESTPress release

Hay muchas maneras diferentes de participar en el mundo del deporte, e independientemente de si se participa jugando, dirigiendo, observando, patrocinando o apoyando, el mundo del deporte afecta la vida de muchas personas de una manera u otra. En el estadio deportivo, los niños desarrollan su autoestima, los equipos fortalecen amistades y se aprende un sentido de juego limpio que, con el tiempo, puede hacer el bien a la sociedad. Aun así, el sector deportivo está expuesta a los efectos de los comportamientos poco éticos. Hemos leído sobre escándalos relacionados con partidos predeterminados, corrupción, acoso sexual, dopaje y desigualdad. Hemos leído las noticias acerca de todo esto, desde sobornar a los anfitriones de grandes eventos internacionales, hasta el abuso de niños en los clubes locales. En este blog discutimos cómo la denuncia de irregularidades es invaluable para mantener los deportes limpios y seguros.

Le lancement d'alerte dans le sport plaide aussi en faveur du jeu équitable, sûr et légal9.8.2019 13:30:54 CESTPress release

Que nous soyons joueur, entraîneur, spectateur, sponsor ou supporter, le monde du sport concerne la vie de nombreuses personnes d'une façon ou d'une autre. Grâce au sport, les enfants se forgent leur propre estime, les équipes créent des liens qui se transforment en amitiés de longue date, et on apprend l'esprit sportif qui pourra profiter au bien-être collectif. Et pourtant, c'est un domaine dans lequel on retrouve aussi des comportements malhonnêtes. Nous sommes témoins de cas de trucage de matchs, de corruption, de harcèlement sexuel, de dopage et d'injustice, avec notamment l'octroi de pots-de-vin pour se voir attribuer un événement international de grande envergure ou encore la maltraitance d'enfants dans les clubs. Dans ce blog, nous expliquons en quoi la dénonciation des abus est essentielle au maintien d'une pratique sûre et honnête du sport.
