Topic: Right to information
Authority: State Labour Court Baden-Württemberg
Sanction: obligation to surrender

The Daimler car group is obliged to disclose comprehensive information about a plaintiff manager, including information about internal investigations. Daimler tried in vain to argue that they had to protect the anonymity of whistleblowers. Companies and employees are often unaware of how comprehensive this right to information is. In principle, everything that has to be disclosed must be disclosed.
