Danish private sector undertakings with more than 249 employees are required to have adequate whistleblower protection measures in place no later than December 17, 2021.
December 17, 2023 onwards the requirements are extended to include undertakings with 50 to 249 employees.
The Danish bill in question implements the EU Directive 2019/1937, also known as the whistleblower directive. The bill pertains not only to whistleblowing on EU law breaches, but generally on "serious violations of the law or other serious offences".
UNIVERSADVOKATER will be happy to assist corporate clients with having all protective measures required in place, timely and adequately, in Denmark only or cross-border.
