Royal Mail worker Jhuti dismissed due to whistleblowing

The Supreme Court has ruled Royal Mail employee Ms Jhuti was unfairly dismissed for blowing the whistle, not for the alleged poor performance which was based on false information that the company’s HR department had suggested was the reason for her dismissal.

The landmark judgment extends the scope of whistleblower protection and suggests that employers and particularly HR departments will need to ensure they have the complete information before dismissing an employee.
