Advice

What is whistleblowing?

Find out how we define whistleblowing, whether it differs from 'speaking up', when it is best to raise a grievance and more.

What we can help with:

What we can't help with:

  • As a legal advice service we offer free expert and confidential advice on how best to raise your concern and your protection as whistleblower
  • We listen and ask the right questions to get a clear picture on complex cases and give practical advice
  • Depending on our resources and policy priorities, we can act as a respected and trusted legal ‘third party’ e.g. writing to a regulator or Government
  • We are not general employment lawyers so cannot provide general employment law advice
  • We do not advocate at the Employment Tribunal, so we cannot represent you
  • We are not a regulatory body, so cannot investigate your whistleblowing concerns
  • As we have limited resources, we can only give advice as far as our resources allow
