Whistleblowing - Time for Change
The whistleblowing charity, Public Concern at Work (PCAW), recently published a review reporting that 60% of whistleblowing claims in the Employment Tribunal were unsuccessful in the years between 2009 and 2013. What is even more worrying is that about 40% of all the whistleblowing claims in these years involved claimants who acted for themselves (litigants in person) and of these only just over 32% were successful.
The report also discusses the legal sanctions sometimes used to bar whistleblowers from making claims and highlights the importance of getting advice as early as possible.
