The Employment Appeal Tribunal has held that whistleblowing laws protect former employees as well as current ones.
What does this mean?
Ex-employees who have blown the whistle on their former employer may be still be protected if they are badly treated as a result.
What should employers do?
Employers should always be careful how they treat staff, including, former staff, who have made what may be “protected disclosures”.
