Austria’s whistleblowing law was adopted as the “HSchG” or “HinweisgeberInnnenschutzgesetz”. All entities with 50 or more employees are obliged to implement reporting channels for whistleblowers. Get a secure and anonymous whistleblowing channel and meet the requirements of the new law.
The Austrian whistleblowing law establishes internal and external reporting channels for whistleblowers and protects them from any form of detriment. The internal reporting channel should be managed in a secure, GDPR-compliant manner that ensures the confidentiality of the reporting person (whistleblower).
Failure to establish whistleblowing channels may result in criminal penalties.
