Experiences In Whistleblowing

The Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998 specifically protects whistle blowers from losing their jobs, provided they comply with the Act – in short, provided the whistle blower adheres to procedures set out by their employers (they do not have to adhere to those procedures, provided they comply with provisions of the Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998) they cannot be dismissed or discriminated against.

We know that most whistle blowers comply with their employers’ procedures and additionally, comply with the provisions of the Act.  We also know that in reality employers ignore the whistle blower’s complaint and positively discriminate against the whistle blower.

At Whistle Blowers Press Agency we receive many, many contributions from people, who to their personal cost, have “blown the whistle”.  Sadly, they have put the cart before the horse – they should have contacted us in the first instance!

If you have blown the whistle to your employer or to an organisation and have been discriminated against, we would like to hear from you.  Moreover, if you have blown the whistle in circumstances not related to your occupation and against your wishes, have been identified, once again, we would like you to contact us.
