Legislation relating to Whistleblowing

It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work. Take a look at relevant legislation below.

The Public Interest Disclosure Act (PIDA) 1998 is derived from Part IV of the Employment Rights Act 1996. It aims to protect employees while making disclosures in the public interest. These disclosures include evidence of illegal activity or damage to the environment. Furthermore, it aims to protect these individuals should they be victimised for disclosing this information, this legislation could aid them in claiming compensation. 

For an employee to qualify from the protection of this legislation, they must make a "protected disclosure" to the employer, prescribed person, legal adviser or an otherwise appropriate person. 

A qualifying disclosure is any declaration of information which shows one or more of the following:

  • dangers of health and safety
  • risk or damage to the environment
  • unlawful activities or criminal acts in an organisation e.g. fraud
  • miscarriages of justice
  • failure to comply with legal obligations e.g. organisations not having the right insurance
  • the belief that someone is covering up wrongdoing
