Whistleblower system

Our internal reporting centre in accordance with the Whistleblower Protection Act (HinSchG) offers our employees the opportunity to report possible violations of laws, internal guidelines or other grievances in the workplace confidentially and securely.

Whistleblower system (internal reporting centre) of Dremo Personaldienstleistung GmbH

Dremo Personaldienstleistung GmbH attaches great importance to compliance with legal regulations and internal behavioural guidelines. In order to fulfil this requirement, it is important to learn of possible misconduct by our employees, as information can be very valuable. They help to uncover or prevent legal violations.
For this reason, we have set up an internal reporting centre for our company in accordance with the provisions of the Whistleblower Protection Act, which processes incoming information independently and confidentially. This ensures the greatest possible protection for all those involved in investigating the reported misconduct.

Objective of the Whistleblower Protection Act (HinSchG) 

The objective is to protect persons who, in the course of their professional activities, have obtained information about offences committed by colleagues or managers and report them. The 
HinSchG prohibits any reprisals against whistleblowers and obliges companies to set up secure internal reporting centres for whistleblowing.
In addition to internal reporting centres, there are also external reporting centres operated by the federal government or the federal states. These are also open to all whistleblowers.

Dremo Personaldienstleistung GmbH encourages everyone inside and outside the company who observes or suspects violations of rules in connection with our company to contact our internal reporting centre and report the information without fear of reprisals. The identity of the whistleblowers and the persons who are the subject of the report, as well as other persons named in the report, will be treated confidentially and will only be visible by our authorised representative of the internal reporting centre (ombudsman Werner Stolz). However, there is no protection for whistleblowers in the event of wilful or grossly negligent disclosure of incorrect information. In such cases, the person providing the information in bad faith may even be obliged to compensate for the damage.

Which offences can be reported?

Not every report of a breach of legal provisions is covered by the Whistleblower Protection Act. A list of all offences covered can be found in Section 2 of the Whistleblower Protection Act, including:

  • Punishable offences
  • Offences for which a fine is payable, insofar as the penultimate provision serves to protect life, limb or health or to protect the rights of employees
  • Other violations of EU legislation with provisions:
    • on product safety
    • for the safe transport of dangerous goods
    • on environmental protection, consumer protection, data protection, public procurement law, competition law

Which persons can be whistleblowers and use the internal reporting centre?

It is required that whistleblowers have obtained the information about an offence in connection with their professional activity. Whistleblowers can therefore be: 

  • Employees, temporary employees, former employees, applicants, governing bodies, etc.
  • Clients, contractors, business partners, competitors, service providers, suppliers, etc.

How can whistleblowers report?

The reporting of the above-mentioned offences can be entered easily and smoothly via this platform:

A personal appointment can also be arranged on request, but you must first contact our trusted lawyer Werner Stolz via one of the channels listed.

We encourage all whistleblowers to use the reporting centre provided by Dremo Personaldienstleistung GmbH. It can also be used anonymously and no reprisals are associated with it.

Process flow of the internal reporting centre

After submitting a report, whistleblowers receive a confirmation of receipt within seven days. The report will be thoroughly investigated. If further information is required, our trusted lawyer Werner Stolz will contact the whistleblower. Only if this initial assessment reveals a suspicion of an offence will an investigation be initiated. The results of the investigation are then analysed and appropriate measures are taken. Within three months of confirmation of receipt of the report, the whistleblowers will be informed of the results of the investigation, any follow-up measures planned or already taken and the reasons for these. Your information will help us to avert serious disadvantages for Dremo Personaldienstleistung GmbH, our employees and our business partners.
