You can report past incidents as well as situations that are occurring at the present time or that you believe will take place in the future. In order to be protected by law, the disclosure that you wish to make must be in the public interest. This means that others are affected by it.

  • The reporting of a criminal offence or of lawbreaking
  • The reporting of a miscarriage of justice
  • The reporting of health and safety issues
  • The reporting of environmental damage or the risk of damage

You are protected by law if you are an employee, a trainee or an agency worker, and there is no minimum period of service in this area of employment law.
