Whistleblowing Jarmans Solicitors can advise and support you.
What is Whistleblowing?
If you work for a company or organisation and have become concerned that there is something wrong with their practices, policies or standards – including, but not limited to criminal acts being committed, health and safety legislation being disregarded, safety being put at risk as a result or wilfully damaging the environment and its surroundings – you can speak out about it. This is called Whistleblowing.
What happens if I become a Whistleblower?
If you become a Whistleblower, you are then protected by law. This will mean that your employer is then unable to dismiss you (without good cause or because of the disclosure) and you will also be protected against harassment, harm, threats, hostility or disciplinary action related to the disclosure whilst you remain in their employment.
What process do I need to follow to successfully Whistleblow?
It’s really important to get the Whistleblowing process right.
Your employer should have a Whistleblowing Policy that you can easily access and which should have been shared with you at the start of your employment. We suggest you read through this to start, as it will set out the process for reporting your concerns internally first.
However, there may be reasons why you are not able to report your concerns internally. In this instance, you can employ the services of a third-party adviser, such as a solicitor, who will be able to advise and support you through every step of the process.
How can Jarmans help me?
The Whistleblowing process can be tricky to manage on your own. You can rely on our professional and experienced solicitors at Jarmans to help you navigate through the legalities of it, whilst providing you with a service that supports you in making informed decisions.

The solicitor called Jeanine has been very helpful and supportive and advised me I have a very strong case to stop my so-called friend from taking half my house away from me.

‘’We first contacted Christopher Kennett in April 2020, regarding a boundary dispute as you can appreciate these things if not dealt with correctly can quickly turn nasty. Christopher came to the site so that he completely understood the situation and was not relying on photographs, which can in some cases be misleading.
