Whistbleblowing

Our experienced team of specialist Employment law solicitors, based in Reading and Henley-on-Thames, can advise you in relation to whistbleblowing, including on those areas below.

The term ‘whistleblowing’ (also known as ‘making a protected disclosure’) essentially means the ability for you, as an employee, to report concerns about illegal, unethical or otherwise unacceptable conduct in the workplace – without being treated unfairly for doing so. The ‘malpractice’ in question needs to be a matter of public interest, such as a breach of a legal obligation. An example would be if you knew of a specific health and safety risk within your organisation and reported it (either directly to your employer or to an appropriate authority).

It is unlawful for you to be dismissed, or subjected to any detriment (i.e. less favourable treatment while at work) for having made a protected disclosure. The legal protection is given as it is in the public interest that you ‘blow the whistle’ and there is therefore no minimum period of service with your employer you need to reach before you are protected.

Please see further information on our team of Employment Law solicitors and our full range of services. 

What We Can Help You With

  • Whether an issue in your workplace might amount to ‘whistleblowing’ if disclosed.
  • Advising you on the best process for making any protected disclosure and who the disclosure should be made to.
  • Whether you have suffered any detriment or dismissal due to ‘whistleblowing’ and your options in relation to any potential claims – including advising you on any likely financial recovery (compensation for whistleblowing cases is uncapped so claims can be valuable).
  • Practical steps in dealing with your employment situation going forward (whether at the same employer or not).
