Johannesbad - Group whistleblower system
Welcome to the whistleblowing system of the Johannesbad - Group
Protected reporting channels - internal and external - are essential for effective compliance in our company. Just like the protection of internal whistleblowers from sanctions, they promote the reporting of possible misconduct and serve the comprehensive clarification and investigation of violations of rules.
We provide internal and external whistleblowers with various ways of finding out about possible breaches of rules. Our whistleblower system is a protected channel through which our employees and external persons can report information on possible misconduct while maintaining the confidentiality of their identity and, if desired, completely anonymously. Breaches of rules are negligent or intentional violations of regulations, laws and guidelines, for example. This also includes breaches of duty by employees of the Johannesbad Group under employment contracts, breaches of our principles of conduct and breaches of other internal regulations as well as breaches of ethical principles. Of course, any violations of rules can also be reported through other channels, such as directly to managers, the Executive Board or the Compliance Department.
We take any reports of violations very seriously, clarify them comprehensively and respond appropriately, taking into account the relevant legal standards, in particular from labor law, data protection law and co-determination law.
Internal whistleblowers who provide information in good faith are protected from sanctions on our part by a policy.
If you wish to provide a tip, we ask that you always answer the following questions in your tip: 
  1. In which Johannesbad Group company are you employed? 
  2. At which location are you employed or where did the incident occur?
  3. When did the incident actually occur (date and time, if applicable)?
  4. Which persons are involved in the incident and which areas or third parties are involved in the incident?
Please note that we can only provide you with feedback on the processing of the matter if you tick the option to be available for queries. In doing so, the confidentiality of your identity will of course continue to be fully protected. You will receive a link and can assign a password to view our feedback and be available for queries without your identity being traced.
In addition, we would like to point out that in the context of uploading documents, for IT security reasons, only documents with the extensions .xlsx, .docx, .jpg and .pdf may be uploaded.
Your message will be encrypted end-to-end and cannot be traced even if accessed from the company network.
We thank you for your support and cooperation in the Johannesbad - Group!
