How do I make a wider disclosure?

The law protects individuals who make a wider disclosure (ie beyond the employer or relevant regulator) from detriment or dismissal if they meet certain other legal tests (set out in Section 43G ERA).  Usually you will be expected to have raised a concern with the employer or prescribed regulator before you make a wider disclosure, but there are limited circumstances when you can make a wider disclosure without taking the matter elsewhere first.

Seek advice before you make a wider disclosure, and especially if you plan to go to the press.
