The German Whistleblower Protection Act (HinSchG) passed the final hurdle in the Bundesrat on 12 May 2023 and is expected to come into force at the beginning of July 2023. Companies based in Germany, employing 250 or more people are now obliged to transpose the requirements of the HinSchG within one month. For companies with 50 to 249 employees, an extended transposition period until 17 December 2023 applies.

In this free webinar we will delve into the key aspects of the German Whistleblower Protection Act and discuss how it impacts not only German companies but also companies with branches in Germany. Furthermore, we explore the practical implementation of the act for companies and how you can effectively set up and manage a whistleblowing system.
