Whistleblowing and Supply Chain Risk Management

Overview

In light of the proposed implementation of the EU Directive on Whistleblowing in Germany, organisations are going to have to prepare for enhanced internal procedures to ensure they are compliant. This webinar will cover practical procedures and thought leadership such as the setting up of whistleblowing hotlines, how to handle internal investigations and the management of employer supply chain due diligence. The panel will also cover the legal functions’ monitoring duties from an employment law perspective – not least the co-determination rights of works councils.
