Compliance violations can occur in many forms in companies. However, employees often do not know how and to whom they can report possible violations. Or they deliberately keep their knowledge of wrongdoing to themselves - for fear of reprisals.
The Whistleblowing Directive (EU) 2019/1937, which should have been transposed into German law by December 17, 2021, aims to remedy this situation and strengthen the rights of whistleblowers. For information on the current status of the legislative process, see our blog article.

Here we go again – Whistleblower Protection 2.0
The German Federal Ministry of Justice recently followed up on the announcements made in the "traffic light" coalition agreement by reissuing the overdue draft of a whistleblower protection law. We answer the most important questions in connection with this draft law, which has been updated in its second version, and highlight in particular the main changes compared to the previous version - from the now stricter sanctions to new possibilities for flexibility.
