What is Whistleblowing?

Whistleblowing is when a worker discloses information about some danger, fraud or other illegal or unethical conduct in the workplace. The disclosure might be to you or to a third party.

Workers do not generally have to ‘blow the whistle’ but if they do, and there is a qualifying protected disclosure, they are protected against being subjected to a detriment or being unfairly dismissed.
