Update on whistleblowing

Webinar in Italian

Date: 6 November 2023


Webinar on the Whistleblower Protection Act by DISS-CO





In our webinar, we will provide an overview of the new law for better whistleblower protection as the national implementation of the EU Directive 2019/1937 and the obligation due to the national implementation in Italy. Through the national implementation of the directive, companies and in particular legal entities in the public and private sector in Italy will be required to establish a confidential and secure whistleblowing channel for internal and external users such as employees and business partners. Practical tips on implementation, internal investigation and follow-up will guide participants through the challenges of implementing an internal reporting system.
