Germany: Bundesrat issues opinion on draft Whistleblowing Protection Act

The Federal Council ('Bundesrat') issued, on 16 September 2022, its opinion on the draft Whistleblower Protection Act ('HinSchG'). In particular, the Bundesrat suggested, among other things, some amendments to the draft HinSchG, as approved by the Federal Cabinet of Germany, in July 2022. Among other amendments, the Bundesrat called for the examination of the relationship between overlapping legal provisions on notifications in order to avoid legal uncertainties.
