On March 15, the Law Decree No. 24/2023 (so-called “Whistleblowing” decree) has been published in the Italian Official Gazette. The decree enhances the principles of transparency and accountability in reporting and applies to all private companies that (i) employ an average of more than 50 employees or (ii), regardless of the number of employees, are active in sectors deemed particularly “sensitive” or (iii) already have in place an Organizational Model for the prevention of crimes (so-called “231” model). The new decree introduces the obligation to set up adequate reporting channels and whistleblower protection systems.
