What is whistleblowing?
Whistleblowing is when an employee (or other person), aka the “whistleblower”, spontaneously reports any wrongdoing or malpractice witnessed in the workplace. Regulations introduced by Italian Legislative Decree 24/2023, which implements EU Directive n. 2019/1937 (the so-called Whistleblowing Directive), protects the privacy of the persons who report breaches and provides for a series of guarantees against possible acts of retaliation.
Whistleblowing law does not cover personal grievances, claims or demands by the person reporting that concern the person’s individual work relationship or complaints regarding commercial activities.
Who can report a breach?
Breaches can be reported by employees, ex-employees, job candidates, interns, partners, customers, suppliers, consultants, contractors, as well as people having administrative, managerial, control, security or representational roles within Liverani Group S.p.a.
It is also possible to make an anonymous report as long it is specific and contains sufficient details for ascertaining the facts reported (e.g. elements that enable the identification of the persons involved, the context, the place and the period of time the reported facts refer to, and supporting documentation).
