Frequently asked questions

Which companies shall comply with the Whistleblowing Act?

The Whistleblowing Act requires companies with at least 50 employees and all service providers subject to AML obligations, regardless their headcount, such as credit institutions, real estate agents, lawyers, accountancy firms, but also service providers dealing with the trade or brokerage of cultural goods (works of art, antiques) to establish and operate an internal whistleblowing system.

How to comply with the obligations?

Companies must ensure that they have an internal whistleblowing platform and that all complaints are investigated.

Does the 50-employee limit include subcontractors?

Yes, the Complaints Act also applies to firms that employ subcontractors, so the 50-employee limit can be easily reached.

What is the whistleblowing system for and who can make a report?

The internal whistleblowing system allows you to report information about any illegal or suspected illegal act or omission, or other forms of abuse.

Practically anyone who has some kind of connection with the business concerned can report to the system, in particular employees, contractors, entrepreneurs, subcontractors, suppliers, persons with an ownership interest in the employer, and persons who are members of the employer’s administrative, management or supervisory boards.

How should the company ensure the submission of reports?

The system must be designed to allow the whistleblower to make the report in writing or orally (by telephone or other voice messaging system, or in person). Reports should be investigated within a maximum of thirty days from the date of receipt of the report, or within a maximum of three months if an extension is justified.

What is the role of the whistleblowing attorney?

The whistleblowing attorney receives notifications relating to the activities of the client, provides legal advice to the whistleblower on how to make a report and contacts the whistleblower.

In order to investigate the report, the whistleblowing attorney may, if necessary, request information or clarification from the whistleblower, assist in the conduct of the investigation initiated on the basis of the report, as instructed by the client, and, upon request, inform the whistleblower in writing of the status of their case, in particular the outcome of the investigation initiated on the basis of the report, measures taken by the client or the refusal to conduct an investigation.

The whistleblowing attorney shall transmit the report to the client, but shall send an extract of the report containing no data that would allow the identification of the whistleblower, unless he has given his prior written consent to the transmission of his personal data.

We use a different whistleblowing platform; can we still use your whistleblowing attorney service?

Yes, we are flexible to adapt to established systems, with optional telephone and email hotlines.

Are the parties heard online during the investigation?

We prefer to hear the parties online.

However, in the event that a personal appearance is required to investigate the notification, an additional hourly fee will be charged for travel outside Budapest and Pest County.

Does the cost include everything?

The whistleblowing attorney service is a flat-rate service and covers all costs. The fees shown on the website are indicative and do not include VAT.

Can I choose annual or monthly accounting?

If required, a 12-monthly schedule can be chosen, but the minimum duration of the contract is 1 year.
