Whistleblowing is the term used when a worker passes on information concerning wrongdoing, which is called “making a disclosure” or “blowing the whistle”. The wrongdoing will typically (although not necessarily) be something they have witnessed at work.

To be covered by whistleblowing law, a worker who makes a disclosure must reasonably believe two things and the employer or receiving organisation must manage the disclosure in accordance with the law that is set out in the Employment Rights Act 1996 and Public Interest Disclosure Act (PIDA) 1998.
