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

This report relates to 1 case(s)

  • expand disabled

    ALM Medical Services Ltd v Bladon [2002] IRLR 807 CA (0 other reports)

Key points

  • 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 [2002] IRLR 807.
