If you feel that you are being treated unfairly because of your whistleblowing, you can make a claim to the Employment Tribunal. You, as an employee, are protected under the Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998 (PIDA) as a ‘whistleblower’ from mistreatment by your employer.
You will have to show three things to claim unfair dismissal because of a protected disclosure (whistleblowing):
that you made a disclosure.
that you followed the correct disclosure procedure.
that you were dismissed or suffered a detriment because of making the disclosure.
It's worth noting that a claim must be brought for unfair dismissal within three months of your employment ending. However, it's still sensible to seek legal advice even if this time has lapsed.
If you believe you have been unfairly dismissed because of disclosing any wrongdoing, you could have a possible claim for unfair dismissal and we can assist you to deal with this.
