  • 2019 Corporate Responsibility Report

Systematic handling of infractions

We always investigate tip-offs about a breach of statutory or internal regulations when there is a sufficiently tangible description of the matter at hand. Among other things, we run a whistleblower portal called “Tell me!” as a means of accepting tip-offs.

  • All tip-offs are carefully investigated.
  • Any violations we uncover are punished appropriately. In some cases employment relationships have even been terminated for good cause. Claims for damages may also be asserted.
  • Any weaknesses identified in the internal control system during the investigation are systematically analyzed and remedied.

Deutsche Telekom is party to proceedings both in and out of court with government agencies, competitors, and other parties. We have reported on what Deutsche Telekom views as key processes in the 2019 annual report.
