Both public organisations and private enterprises will in future be affected by the upcoming legislation on whistleblowing schemes, which will take effect next fall, when Denmark is scheduled to have implemented the rules adopted by the EU. How will this affect your place of work, and how will you handle this challenge? Get the answers here.
In the months to come, multiple public authorities and organisations and private enterprises with more than 50 employees must set up whistleblowing schemes making it possible for employees, business partners and other stakeholders to report suspicions of irregularities. This is due to a new EU Directive which enters into force in the fall of 2021. For government agencies, the deadline is even shorter. Already in July, the Danish Ministry of Justice announced that all government agencies employing more than 50 people must have the schemes in place as early as November of this year.
