This book provides a detailed survey of the law relating to public interest disclosure. It examines how the system has developed since the coming into force of the Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998 (PIDA), and provides up-to-date practical guidance on the key issues that arise in practice. Analysing the legal framework in the area, both under PIDA and the disparate sources of law that can apply, it provides in-depth commentary on case law and legislative developments. It examines the structure of PIDA, litigation procedure and remedies under the Act, data protection, confidentiality, copyright, defamation issues, and the Human Rights Act 1998, as well as the contractual and fiduciary duties of employees, statutory obligations (both regulatory and criminal), and the Corporate Governance Codes. Since the publication of the second edition, there have been many developments in the area, including substantial procedural amendments for Employment Tribunals, major legislative changes brought in by the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act 2013 (ERRA) (the first major legislative change since the Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998), and the introduction of The Public Interest Disclosure (Prescribed Persons) Order 2014 SI 2014/2148 which now lists over 60 prescribed persons to whom a disclosure may be made. Written by an author team with extensive experience in the area, and making use of checklists and worked examples, this book is an essential reference work for employment practitioners dealing with cases involving public interest disclosure issues. It will also be of interest to private and public sector employers seeking guidance on whistleblowing procedures and policies.



Thorough, erudite, readable and resource-rich, this definitive work on the subject of whistleblowing should be regarded as an essential purchase for human rights lawyers and for that matter, all lawyers interested in this evolving area of the law. * Richard Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor, The Barrister * The third edition offers a comprehensive analysis of the law relating to whilstleblowing, make it an essential reference book for all those working in this field. * Anthony Korn, Employment Lawyers Association Briefing. *
