What disclosures qualify for protection?

The Public Interest Disclosure Act provides a legal remedy for a worker who has suffered detrimental treatment or has been dismissed as a result of whistleblowing. However, there are a number of elements that you will have to demonstrate in order to make a claim.

You will need to show (a) that you made a qualifying disclosure (b) that you made the disclosure in the correct way to be protected by the law and (c) that there is a causal link between you making the disclosure and the treatment you then received (either detriment or dismissal).
