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.

From the moment I instructed Jarmans Solicitors I felt confident this would be a quick and seemless purchase, unlike my previous Solicitors! Sonia Thrower in particular was amazing at keeping me updated throughout.
We have just successfully purchased our first home with the help from Sonia Thrower at Jarmans. We are very impressed with the service that we received, at first we were quite worried as the person that was given our case had left and Sonia took over at very early stages. With our purchase it was very different to normal as we also had land attached to our property where it started to get a little confusing with title numbers etc
