The Whistleblower Directive adopted by the EU in October 2019 presents companies with numerous challenges. The directive requires companies with at least 50 employees to implement a whistleblower system. Employees must have the opportunity to report legal infringements by the company in confidence.

Does this endanger the existing corporate culture? Or is the guideline more of an opportunity to be able to clear up possible legal violations internally before they are investigated by the authorities?

Dr. Dieter Thalhammer and Judith Feldner will inform the MyHive community on 29.01.2020 about the innovations in a practical way, and look forward to an exciting discussion.

Dieter Thalhammer is a partner, and head of our antitrust law practice group. Judith Feldner is a partner in our Vienna office, and a member of the antitrust law practice group.
