Whistle Blowing

Unfair dismissal claims are capped at 66,200 pounds from 1 February 2009. However, Employment Tribunals can award unlimited damages for breaches of whistle blower protection laws.

Whistle blowing is not just to do financial irregularity or criminal offences. Staff can report employers for

breach of contractual obligation, for example, breach of contract for failing to pay a bonus

breach of statutory obligation, for example, breach of health and safety

failure to protect an employee who reports stress or bullying.

The ultimate cost in the loss of reputation to the employer might be more damaging than the money claim.
