The Law in England and Wales
It is against the law for an employer to discriminate against or dismiss a worker because she/he blew the whistle on wrong doing by the employer.
If you are ready to blow the whistle about wrong doing by your employer, or if you have been treated differently or unfairly dismissed for disclosing information which you believe is in the public interest; you should know that the law in England and Wales offers legal protection for workers including employees, trainees, contractors, agency workers, freelancers and directors.
Protection for Whistleblowers
As a whistleblower you must believe that your disclosure about wrong doing or criminal activities by an employer is in the public interest. You are protected by law if you report any of the following:
- a criminal offence
- a risk to a person’s health and safety
- no insurance / wrong type of insurance
- risk of or actual damage to the environment
- you believe someone is covering up wrongdoing
- a miscarriage of justice

If I Lose My Job Can I Get Compensation?
There is no upper limit on the compensation awards given in whistle blowing cases.
