Protected Disclosures and Whistleblowing
If an employee ‘blows the whistle’ at work about practices that give rise to concerns this could amount to a protected disclosure. A common example would be Health and Safety practices.
Beecham Peacock are here to help with all of your Employment Law problems.
As an employer you will need a robust policy in place to outline how such concerns should be raised. Our employment and whistleblowing lawyers can assist with drafting such policies and/or reviewing and updating existing policies.
We can also provide advice and support at any stage of the whistleblowing process, including identifying whether a disclosure is likely to amount to a protected disclosure, whether it has been properly made and how to deal with the concerns raised using the correct procedure.
It is particularly important to deal with whistleblowing in a legally compliant manner. If an employee asserts that you have subjected them to a detriment or if they are subsequently dismissed, then this can give rise to an Employment Tribunal claim if they can link this treatment with their disclosure.
