01 March 2018

There is a double edged sword in whistleblowing claims. A co-worker who has victimised a colleague may be personally liable and employers can be vicariously liable where their employees victimise a whistleblowing colleague.

We also discuss the steps employers and individuals can take to protect against legal claims.
