Workers have legal protection against being treated badly or being sacked by their employer as a result of disclosing information to them about alleged wrongdoing. This is known as ‘whistleblowing’.
If a worker discloses information about a criminal offence being committed, legal obligations not being complied with, a miscarriage of justice occurring, health and safety being breached or environmental damage then they may be entitled to legal protection. If the worker’s disclosure is about their employer trying to conceal one of these things they may also be afforded protection.
The whistleblower must act in good faith though, which means that a worker will not get protection if they have an ulterior motive. Further (apart from in limited circumstances) the disclosure has to be made to the whistleblower’s employer.
Therefore, if for example you told your employer that you thought they were putting you at risk by exposing you to hazardous chemicals, or that they have entered into a contract illegally and you were then dismissed or passed over for promotion as a result, you should seek legal advice immediately about making a claim.
OH Parsons has considerable experience in dealing with successful whistleblowing claims and is able to offer expert advice in this complex area of law.
