Beatt v Croydon Health Services NHS Trust  IRLR 748 CA
whistleblowing | protected disclosure | automatic unfair dismissal
The Court of Appeal has held that, where the reason or principal reason for a dismissal is because the employee made a disclosure, the question of whether or not that disclosure is protected falls to be determined objectively by the tribunal, and not the employer.
