Does it apply to me?

The Whistleblower Directive applies to EU companies or branches with 50+ employees, as well as to local authorities serving 10k+ people. Here's how to comply:

Establish an Internal Reporting Channel

Companies need a way for employees and other stakeholders to report wrongdoing directly. These internal channels must be confidential and secure.

Provide Information for Reporting Persons

Inform all employees and any potential reporting persons of their rights and protections, and train them on the reporting process.

Protect Whistleblowers’ Information

Keep whistleblowers’ personal data confidential, and make sure they stay anonymous if they want to. As always, complying with data protection rules like GDPR is vital.

Prevent Retaliation

Organizations are required to take proactive measures to prevent retaliation by putting an anti-retaliation policy in place, conducting fair internal investigations, and supporting whistleblowers who do face retaliation.

Who needs to comply with the EU Whistleblower Directive?

Any EU-based company with 50+ employees has to comply with the requirements of the directive or face penalties. The whistleblower directive also lays out rules for local authorities serving over 10k people.
IMPORTANT: Even if your company is based outside the EU, if you have an EU branch with at least 50 employees, it also needs to comply with the directive.

What do I have to do to comply?

First, introduce a reporting system like our new Whistleblowing Management Tool. We simplify all the required confidentiality and secure data processing. Next up — educate your employees about their rights and how to make a report. Our printable report forms with QR codes and cross-platform consistency make that easy too. You also need to let reports be filed anonymously and protect a reporting person’s identity if they choose to include their information when reporting. Anonymous Reporting is bundled into your forms with iubenda. Last but not least, establish firm anti-retaliation policies, uphold fair investigations, and back whistleblowers whenever challenges arise.

IMPORTANT: While our Whistleblowing Management Tool is designed to support written reports for your business, the Directive also requires you to enable in-person and oral reporting within your internal reporting channel, while providing the same protections to reporting persons.

How does the anonymous reporting feature work?

It’s a simple form option. Protecting whistleblowers’ data and respecting their anonymity is written into the directive, so make sure you have a secure solution like what you get with iubenda. Our reporting tool lets individuals choose Anonymous Reporting while filling out a form. Since no personal data is collected, there’s no risk of identifying the person making the report, and your dashboard shows only the necessary details to act on the report.

What sort of violations can be reported?

Our ready-to-use form includes multiple options for reporting, such as privacy violations, financial misconduct, consumer protection, harassment, environmental issues, and more.
