Whistleblowing: protected disclosures

PLEASE NOTE: Information in this article is correct at the time of publication, please contact DFA Law for current advice on older articles.

The EAT has decided that a disclosure of information after employment ends can be protected disclosure under the whistleblowing provisions of the Employment Rights Act 1996. The case confirms that a qualifying disclosure can be protected under whistleblowing law, whether it was made:

  • During employment with the respondent employer.
  • During employment with a previous employer.
  • After employment with the respondent employer has terminated.
  • Before the whistleblowing legislation came into force.

This checklist outlines the protection given to whistleblowers at work under UK law.
