Whistleblowing

Employees ‘whistleblow’ where they disclose information, either verbally or in writing, that tends to show, for example, that a criminal offence has been commited or where the employee has breached a legal obligation or even where health and safety breach is identified. An employee should be free to whistleblow without fear of retribution however in reality employers do not always protect employees who whistleblow and so the law steps in to ensure that the employee should not be subjected to any detriment as a result of blowing the whistle and furthermore if the employee is dismissed as a consequence of whistleblowing the dismissal is declared automatically unfair and the employee does not need to have a minimum length of service to bring a claim.
