Whistleblowing occurs when an employee or worker raises a concern about wrongdoing within an organisation, namely a dangerous or illegal practice which affects others, such as the public. This is called ‘making a disclosure in the public interest’.
We can provide legal representation for employees victimised after blowing the whistle, but also to help before the event, by offering practical advice and assistance in how to report public interest concerns in the best way to avoid difficulties. If you are an employer facing whistleblowing allegations, we can help you resolve disputes and malpractice and offer disclosures through negotiation. Also, as a preventative measure we can help you put in place effective framework to avoid incidents of whistleblowing in the first place. We have experience in helping both sides in whistleblowing, which gives us the advantage of knowing what the other side is thinking.
