Did you know that Poland will soon implement the EU regulations regarding whistleblowers?

What should you do?

Companies employing at least 50 employees will be obliged to have internal solutions (internal communication channels) enabling safe, confidential and anonymous reporting of irregularities within the organisation (the Whistleblower System). Reports will have to be recognised by an impartial, independent and competent entity within your organisation.

The whistleblower (e.g. employee, intern) should receive feedback from you (employer) within the set deadline. Moreover, (as the employer) you will be obliged to maintain a register of reports and take up appropriate (explanatory or corrective) actions, with particular focus on the GDPR rules.

A relevant Whistleblower System will certainly be helpful in improving the management of difficult matters in your organisation, even if you employ fewer than 50 employees.

How can we help?

Our law office is ready to support you at multiple stages related to the Whistleblower System (i.a. assistance in choosing a relevant IT platform for whistleblowers, system analysis, creation of procedures, trainings, receiving reports, or support in the process of explaining major irregularities).
