Sherlock Web Whistleblower Module
The EU Directive requires that the Whistleblower scheme must be implemented by 17 December 2021 in municipalities, public institutions and private companies with more than 249 employees.
Private companies with 50 – 249 employees must implement a Whistleblower scheme by 17 December 2023.
Reports to a Whistleblower scheme will typically be about:
Criminal offenses such as serious breaches of occupational safety, environmental pollution, breaches of data security, misuse of financial means, breach of professional secrecy, theft, embezzlement, bribery, fraud, gross or repeated breaches of law, breaches of competition rules, breaches of corporate tax rules, work-related conflicts, sexual harassment and violence.
The whistleblower scheme is not intended to report conflicts between colleagues or dissatisfaction with management or to report that you may think a colleague has a problem with alcohol, drugs or the like.
Sherlocks Whistleblower Module ensures:
-That a Whistleblower can choose to report anonymously
-That a Whistleblower can choose to state contact information if he / she would like to be contacted
-That the report can only be seen by specially authorized
-That the authorized responsible person of Whistleblower reports receives a reminder no later than 7 days after receipt, because the law requires that the Whistleblower must have the opportunity to receive a confirmation of receipt, if he / she has provided contact information in the report
-That the authorized responsible person of Whistleblower reports receives a reminder no later than 30 days after receipt, because the law requires Whistleblower to be able to receive feedback within a reasonable time, if he / she has provided contact information in the report
