If you have “blown the whistle” in the workplace about what you believed to be a breach of a legal obligation by your employer – such as criminal activity, regulatory breach, a health and safety breach or an attempt to cover up wrongdoing – you are protected by law. This protection applies if you are an employee, worker or a member of a Limited Liability Partnership.
Whistleblowers who subsequently experience detrimental treatment by their employer – including bullying, harassment or discrimination, being dismissed sacked or forced out as a result of having blown the whistle, should seek expert legal advice.
In these circumstances you may have a claim against your employer subject to you being within the applicable deadline.
