Whistleblowing detriment claim (Court of Appeal decision) - Tiplady v City of Bradford MDC. [CA] 11.12.19 (Unreported)
A whistleblowing detriment claim under the Employment Rights Act 1996 s.47B could only be brought in respect of detriments suffered in the employment field. An employment tribunal had therefore been entitled to find that the alleged detriments that the claimant complained of did not fall within the protection of s.47B because they concerned her seeking the exercise of the local authority's powers as a householder and therefore did not arise in the employment field. Appeal dismissed.Link to judgment
