Employment Breakfast Briefing - 7 August 2018Recent Developments in Whistle-blowing Protection

Tuesday 7th August, 2018 |
Radisson Blu, Leeds

FREE SEMINAR

Whistle-blowing protection for workers and employees is a fast growing area of employment law. This seminar will cover recent case law decisions, statutory changes and provide tips for handling potentially protected disclosures.

Following the Court of Appeal decision in Chestertons v Nurmohamed, when will a disclosure about an employee's own contract or working conditions reasonably be believed to be in the public interest (Parsons v Airplus International Ltd)?

Can an employer safely dismiss an employee who has made disclosures which the employer believes are not protected by the legislation (Beatt v Croyden Health Services NHS Trust)?

Can an employer be liable for automatic dismissal on the ground of whistle-blowing where a dismissing officer does not know about the protected disclosures, but is manipulated into dismissing by a co-worker (Royal Mail Ltd v Jhuti)?

In whistle-blowing detriment claims, must the person who subjects the employee to the detriment be personally motivated by the disclosures (Malik v Cenkos Securities Plc)?

What kind of losses can a whistle-blower be awarded? (Wilsons Solicitors LLP v Roberts)?
