Whistleblowing and raising a concern policy

The Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998 was designed to protect employees who make certain disclosures of information in the public interest and to allow those employees who “blow the whistle” on any of the instances of wrongdoing that are set out in the Act, to complain to an employment tribunal if they suffer any form of detriment for doing so. Alongside the Act, employees have the protection set out in the Civil Service Code.
