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 a whistleblower
  • We are experts in the specific legal rights that whistleblowers have at work, and are also able to advise on some other connected rights
  • 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 do not advocate at the Employment Tribunal, so we cannot represent you in legal proceedings
  • We are not able to advise on all workplace legal rights but can signpost you to other services who will be able to help (for instance, if you are looking for advice on discrimination law)
  • 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

What is whistleblowing?
