Public Interest Disclosure

An employee makes a Public Interest Disclosure (Disclosure) where they have some concern about a practice in their workplace or about an issue relating to their contract of employment.

How can we help?

As an employee it can be intimidating and stressful to decide whether to disclose sensitive information concerning an employer. An employee can speak with a member of our Employment Team, on a confidential basis, regarding their concerns and we can advise them whether they should report that information and the procedure for doing so.

Alternatively, if an employee makes a Disclosure and as a result of doing so they are victimised or dismissed, we can advise them on whether they may be entitled to bring a claim for unfair dismissal at the Employment Tribunal.
