The long-awaited obligation for companies, which stems from both European and Czech law, is here. Solve everything in the simplest way with the Up Whistleblowing module and fulfill all legislative obligations easily and pleasantly.
You will have heard about the new obligation for companies – whistleblower protection or Whistleblowing. Businesses will now have a few extra worries. While everything may sound complicated and chaotic, it’s very simple with the Up Whistleblowing module.
What is Whistleblowing anyway?
Whistleblowing deals with situations where a whistleblower raises awareness of a possible illegal act that they have become aware of in the course of their work or similar activity.
Whistleblowing obligations are introduced at European level by EU Directive 2019/1937, and in Czech law by the Whistleblower Protection Act No. 171/2023 Coll., effective from 1 August 2023.
Employers will have to newly ensure the following:
- Establish a functional internal notification system.
- Manage the handling and archiving of notifications.
- Protect the identity of the whistleblower.
- Comply with legal deadlines.
The new Up Whistleblowing service will help you sort out everything you need.
