December 2023, the Whistleblower Protection Act (or ‘wet bescherming klokkenluiders’) was updated. Our practical 4-step tool to create your own robust whistleblower policy can help you create a policy, and comply with legal obligations.
The Whistleblower Protection Act is legislation designed to defend people who expose wrongdoing within an organization, like fraud or safety violations. It aims to prevent punishment for whistleblowing and encourage reporting. All companies with 50 to 249 employees that operate in the Netherlands and the EU now have to meet more obligations. Our practical 4-step tool helps you to create your own robust whistleblower policy – not only to meet legal requirements but to foster a culture of openness and accountability.
