Employment Law & HR Updates, Straight To Your Inbox
A whistleblower refers to a person who becomes aware of illegal acts, failure to comply with regulations or suspected misconduct, and alerts their employer or relevant authority. The Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998 protects an individual from being subjected to any detrimental treatment, for example, a dismissal. However, the person who alerted an authority/employer must have done so in good faith and must not have acted to benefit themselves.
