Whistleblowing, also known as ‘making a protected disclosure’, is potentially a ‘protected act’ under employment law. This means that employees who are aware of unlawful activity in the workplace, and report it, should not be subjected to any detriment as a result, or dismissed due to making this disclosure.

For employees making a disclosure against their employer, it can, understandably, be a stressful process. In some cases, it can even result in the employee suffering a psychiatric injury. There is often an overlap between a whistleblowing claim in the Employment Tribunal, and a civil claim for Stress at Work.

Once you have whistleblown, you could experience bullying or other detrimental repercussions very quickly. We will help protect you from them and advise you on the best way forward.
