The ombudsman will only pass on the information to the company to the extent that the whistleblower has expressly authorised him to do so.
After the first confidential discussion with the ombudsman, a whistleblower may even decide not to disclose any information at all. He does not suffer any disadvantage as a result.
If the whistleblower decides to keep all or only individual information (e.g. name, position in the company, etc.) secret, the ombudsman may not provide any information about this information – not even as a witness in court.
The ombudsman, after consultation with the company, will inform the whistleblower in each individual case of the consequences drawn from the released information.
