Since 2 January 2021, the Whistleblower Protection Act, also known as the Whistleblower Protection Act, has come into force.
The main objective of this law is to strengthen the protection of whistleblowers and at the same time to uncover and prevent corruption and malpractice within companies.
The implementation of internal whistleblower systems is intended to achieve these goals more effectively.
