Our whistleblowing solicitors believe that everyone has the right to speak out against unethical or illegal practices, and we are committed to protecting whistleblowers from retaliation or victimisation.

It is important for employees to understand their rights and protections when it comes to whistleblowing.

  • Whistleblowing is reporting a suspected wrongdoing at work.
  • If the matter you’re reporting is defined as a protected disclosure, then you will have legal safeguards if your employer retaliates by treating you unfairly and unlawfully, or sacking you.
  • The laws concerning whistleblowing are complex and this can be a stressful time, but we will support you with expert advice to uphold your rights.

What is whistleblowing?

Whistleblowing is the act of reporting or disclosing information that is believed to be illegal, unethical, or a breach of a professional code of conduct. This could be done to an appropriate authority, such as a regulatory body, or to the public.

You will be protected as a whistleblower if you make a report in relation to a protected disclosure. We can advise you on what such a disclosure consists of.

Unlawful detriment

It’s against the law for an employer to subject you to a detriment for making a protected disclosure. A detriment can include threats, disciplinary action, loss of work or pay, or damage to career prospects.

Unfair dismissal

If you have been dismissed for making a protected disclosure, then so long as certain criteria are met you may be able to bring a claim for unfair dismissal against your employer. We can advise you as to whether you’re able to bring a claim for unfair dismissal; if not, we can tell what other claims you may have against your employer.
