OMBUDSMAN, LAWYER OF TRUST...
WHAT DOES HE ACTUALLY DO?
Employees and business partners, but also other external third parties who wish to report a violation of laws or compliance guidelines, are given the opportunity to confidentially and – if desired – anonymously report their information to the ombudsman / trusted attorney. Use is free of charge for whistleblowers.
The lawyer’s duty of confidentiality, the lawyer’s right to refuse to give evidence and supplementary contractual regulations also ensure that the identity of the whistleblower is protected. With his experience from several thousand processes, Dr. Carsten Thiel von Herff can safely assess the information given to him.
