Staff and students are often the first to notice unlawful activities or irregularities at the university. Nevertheless, many people are afraid to report such wrongdoings. On July 2, 2023 the German Whistleblower Protection Act (Hinweisgeberschutzgesetz – HinSchG) finally entered into force, which implements uniform protection standards for whistleblowers across the EU.
In accordance with the Whistleblower Protection Act, Hochschule Geisenheim University has established an internal reporting office for staff, students and external parties to report any unlawful activities or misconduct.
Internal Reporting Office Contacts:
Markus Diehl phone: +49 6722 502 621
Marion Waldeck, MBA phone: +49 6722 502 221 fax: +49 6722 502 274
Interne Meldestelle, Hochschule Geisenheim University, Von-Lade-Str. 1, 65366 Geisenheim
Reports received by e-mail, mail or phone will be treated in strict confidence. It is up to the whistleblowers to decide what personal information they want to disclose. If the whistleblower chooses to provide personal data, the reporting office will acknowledge receipt of the report within seven days.
