Whistleblower portal: secure, anonymous and confidential

Uncovering shortcomings and improving the organisation

A whistleblower portal is an important part of any organisation that wants to uncover wrongdoing in the working environment. It offers employees and others a safe and anonymous way to report corruption, fraud or other illegal or unethical behaviour.

The Whistleblower Protection Act (HinSchG) has improved the legal situation regarding whistleblowing in Germany. The HinSchG offers whistleblowers comprehensive protection against reprisals.

The Whistleblower Protection Act (HinSchG) is a German law that regulates the protection of whistleblowers against reprisals. The law came into force on 2 July 2023 and transposes Directive (EU) 2019/1937 into national law.

The HinSchG applies to all organisations with around 50 employees. It protects whistleblowers who obtain information about breaches of Union law in the course of their professional activities and report them.

The most important changes introduced by the HinSchG are

  • An extended scope of application: The HinSchG now also applies to companies with around 50 employees.
  • Stronger protection against reprisals: Reprisals against whistleblowers are now not only prohibited if they are demonstrably attributable to the report, but also if they are related to the report.
  • Improved access to external reporting centres: Whistleblowers now also have access to external reporting centres if their employer has not set up an internal reporting centre.

The implementation of the HinSchG is an important step towards improving the protection of whistleblowers in Germany. The new regulations now offer whistleblowers significantly stronger protection against reprisals and make it easier for them to access external reporting centres.

Frequently asked questions

Does the content of a report have to be proven?

No, it is not necessary to provide concrete evidence of the facts.

The observation of conspicuous or seemingly non-transparent processes is sufficient.

Regardless of this, detailed information helps to clarify the reported facts, so the report should contain as many details as possible.

Please take care not to make yourself liable to prosecution by carrying out further research on your own.

What content is not suitable for the system?

The central reporting office is not a general complaints office. It is there to receive information on potential violations of laws and internal regulations.

Furthermore, no obviously abusive references will be investigated!

Reporting knowingly false information is prohibited and may have consequences!

What personal data can be collected about me?

Your name, if you have disclosed your identity and, if applicable, your contact details, in particular your e-mail address at which you wish to be contacted in the event of any queries

  • whether you are an employee or your position in the company
  • and the circumstances of your actual observation including, where applicable

the names of persons and other personal data of the persons you name in your report.

What is the timeline after the notice has been submitted?

The employer must confirm receipt within 7 days. We will forward the confirmation to the whistleblower.

Furthermore, the whistleblower must be informed of the measures taken within 3 months.

If no action is taken, the whistleblowers must also be informed of this within the aforementioned period.

What can be the subject of a report?

Any behaviour in the working or business environment that is questionable from a legal or ethical point of view can also be reported.

A report can contain serious and obvious violations of German and European law as well as criminal offences that are directed against the interests of your employer.

Examples include theft or embezzlement, corruption, embezzlement, credit fraud or the misuse of data.

This list is not exhaustive.

Issues involving violations of internal company guidelines such as the Code of Conduct and ethical misconduct can also be reported.
