Protected Disclosures Act 2000

Published December 11, 2018 Author: Andrew Felix Rose

Legislation that protects people who report serious wrongdoing (i.e. whistleblowers) in the workplace under certain circumstances.

This means an employer cannot take disciplinary action against an employee who has reported a serious wrongdoing that they have good reason to believe is true or likely to be true. This level of protection extends to employees in the public and private sector who are employees, former employees, homeworkers, contractors, visitors and volunteers.

Under the Human Rights Act 1993 a whistleblower may be able to raise a personal grievance claim against an employer who takes disciplinary action against them because of their actions.
