The European Directive 1937/2019 of October 23rd obliges every company with more than 50 workers to have a whistleblower channel, and for the entire public sector. The Criminal Code, the Law on Equality or the Law on the Prevention of Money Laundering, among others, also impose the mandatory nature of the channels for reporting irregularities and breaches within the organization. However, they must be effectively designed and implemented, guaranteeing confidentiality, independence, and the absence of conflicts of interest, as well as the non-retaliation of the whistleblower acting in good faith.
At Fortuny Legal we design and implement internal reporting channels for all types of organizations, both public and private, in order to comply with the efficiency requirements established by law. We develop “turnkey” projects, taking care of the implementation of a software platform as a first step, to then proceed to the reception and management of complaints received through it, in coordination with the compliance department of each organization, to whom we advise on the different steps to be taken.
