Online reporting platform of Caritasverband in the company for violations under the Whistleblower Protection Act.
Online reporting platform of the Caritasverband für die Diözese Osnabrück e.V. and affiliated member institutions for violations under the Whistleblower Protection Act.
Dear whistleblower,
the Caritas Association for the Diocese of Osnabrück has set up a web-based platform for the confidential reporting of violations of the Whistleblower Protection Act within its own association and its affiliated member organizations. In order to fulfill our responsibility for legally compliant corporate governance, violations of the law can be reported to our ombudspersons via this online reporting portal. We would also like to encourage all employees and temporary workers in our company who perform their work honestly and in accordance with the law to report unfair, unlawful and unethical behavior.
You can report a violation by stating your name. Such a report will be accepted by ombudspersons appointed by us, who are experienced external lawyers committed to absolute confidentiality. If requested, our ombudspersons will treat your inquiry in the strictest confidence and will first examine on their own responsibility whether a relevant violation under the standards of the Whistleblower Protection Act exists at all or appears plausible. Our ombudspersons will then clarify the facts together with the person of trust appointed by our company and provide you with feedback on what has become of your report.
With the platform, we fulfill our obligation to set up a whistleblower system in accordance with the Whistleblower Protection Act. In particular, you can thus provide information about
  • Violations that are punishable by law.
  • Violations that are subject to fines, insofar as the provision serves to protect life, limb or health or to protect the rights of employees or their representative bodies.
  • Other violations within the meaning of Section 2 (1) No. 3 HinSchG These include in particular: Violations of legal provisions to combat money laundering and terrorist financing, violations of product safety and conformity, violations of environmental protection, violations of regulations on consumer rights and consumer protection, violations of privacy in electronic communications or the protection of personal data, violations of security in IT technology, violations of regulations on the auditing of companies and violations of accounting, including the bookkeeping of companies.
be reported.Anyone who reports an alleged violation with good intentions, which is not confirmed upon closer examination, has nothing to fear. However, we would like to point out that deliberate or grossly negligent false reports can lead to criminal, civil and labor law consequences.
