Why is this insurance important to you? strong>
The risks increase
Strict regulations on operational safety in production and in tax and subsidy systems as well as the far-reaching environmental criminal law offer a wide range of attack. All the more so as the ever-growing number of relevant laws and regulations, accompanied by stricter jurisprudence, is often not understood and thus not adequately implemented. But even here ignorance does not protect against punishment. In any case, it hits the responsible employees.
Nobody can rule out unexpectedly getting into criminal proceedings. A complaint from neighbors, competitors, citizens’ groups, alleged victims or a dissatisfied employee is already enough to get the prosecutor’s office into action.
Those affected can so financially blame a charge – whether justified or not. After German criminal law, not the companies, but the employees are personally held responsible. And they then have to defend themselves on their own account. If this does not happen quickly and sustainably, things can quickly escalate. If the case reaches the public, the image of your company will be damaged. This can also have a negative impact on the competitive position.
By the way: delegating increases the risk. Due to organizational negligence, bosses also have to be responsible for mistakes made by employees or subcontractors.
