Of Counsel Michael Magotsch, head of BCLP’s Frankfurt Employment Team, analyzed the EU proposal of a directive to enhance the protection of whistleblowers and the current challenges in German legislation in a bylined article Nov. 20 in WirtschaftsWoche. Magotsch argued that it is in the interest of companies to fight corruption and whistleblower protection should be a key component of any compliance management system. Further legislation, however, is not necessary in Germany since whistleblowers already are protected substantially under German law. WirtschaftsWoche is one of the leading business publications in Germany.
