Are you ready to protect your company and employees from misconduct? Look no further than the Dutch Whistleblower Protection Act! Formerly known as the Wet Huis voor Klokkenluiders, this powerful legislation was established in 2016 to ensure that those who report abuses and wrongdoing in good faith will not be disadvantaged in their careers. Despite delays in implementation, progress is being made and the Netherlands is finally taking steps to fully transpose the EU Whistleblowing Directive into Dutch law. Don’t miss this opportunity to stay informed and prepare your internal processes and tools.

EQS Group and Taylor Wessing Netherlands would like to proudly invite you to attend a comprehensive webinar on the subject.

Join them on Tuesday, February 14th at 11am-12:30pm CET to learn more about the implications of this important legislation, and what it means for your company.
