ALM Medical Services Ltd v Bladon [2002] IRLR 807 CA

Reports relating to this case:

  • Public interest disclosure: Statutory elements of "protected disclosure" must be proved

    10 January 2003

    Where, in a protected disclosure case, the employee had not served the requisite qualifying period to bring an unfair dismissal complaint, the critical issue for the tribunal is whether or not the protected disclosure provisions in the Employment Rights Act 1996 have been satisfied on the evidence, and not substantive or procedural unfairness, which would have been the central issue in a claim for "ordinary" unfair dismissal, the Court of Appeal holds in ALM Medical Services Ltd v Bladon.
