The whist­le­b­lower por­tal pri­ma­ri­ly ser­ves to pro­tect tho­se per­sons who want to con­tri­bu­te to the detec­tion of vio­la­ti­ons by a com­pa­ny against the pro­vi­si­ons of § 2 HinschG. In addi­ti­on to ensu­ring the anony­mi­ty of a whist­le­b­lower, the com­pa­ny con­cer­ned can, thanks to the inco­ming infor­ma­ti­on, take inter­nal mea­su­res to stop vio­la­ti­ons and pre­vent them in the future. The­r­e­fo­re it´s no lon­ger neces­sa­ry to go via supe­ri­ors or other offices within the com­pa­ny who may have been invol­ved in the violation.
