KWKR lawyers on whistleblower protection for CEE Legal Matters

Mariusz Purgał
Magdalena Wielgosz

The new provisions on the draft Whistleblower Protection Act are essentially further obligations for businesses. In addition, failure to comply with them may result in serious criminal penalties. How serious? The draft mentions a fine, restriction of freedom, and even imprisonment of up to three years.

The draft is about to enter into force and as a result, some companies will have to reorganize their internal procedures. Our lawyers are already providing information and assistance to those affected by the bill. The most important information was also published in the international magazine CEE Legal Matters – which only emphasizes the importance of the changes occurring in Polish law. From the article Whistleblower Protection Act Will Soon be Implemented in Poland you can learn

  • what a whistleblower is,
  • what the reporting procedure looks like internally
  • what the whistleblower reporting procedure looks like internally, what the external whistleblower reporting procedure looks like,
  • which companies are obliged to provide their employees with appropriate procedures.

Since the inception of the Directive (EU) 2019/1937 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the protection of whistleblowers of 23 October 2019, our Compliance department has been keeping a close eye on the procedural methods in various companies. Therefore, we offer to audit a company from a legal point of view and to adapt the company’s operation to the currently existing regulations. Feel free to contact us!
