Goode v Marks & Spencer plc

This report relates to 1 case(s)

whistleblowing | protected disclosures | unfair dismissal

The Employment Appeal Tribunal (EAT) has held that where a disclosure is merely an expression of opinion that fails to show that a legal obligation has been or is likely to be breached, it cannot amount to a protected or qualifying disclosure for the purposes of the whistleblowing legislation.

The claimant, Mr Goode, was employed by Marks & Spencer as a database manager.
