Government ‘whistleblowing’ consultation begins

whistleblower

The government today begins a consultation on how employment tribunals can pass on details about whistleblowing cases to appropriate regulators.

The measure is being created to help make it easier for regulators to assess whistle blowing claims and decide whether further action needs to be taken. In addition, the consultation aims to create a clear mechanism for keeping regulators informed, whilst ensuring that unsubstantiated allegations against companies are not made public.

Speaking today at the launch, Lord Young, Minister for Employment Relations said: “This is an important step forward in improving the flow of information between tribunals and industry regulators. This change in the rules will help provide an early warning system for patterns of unlawful, fraudulent or dangerous behaviour emerging within an industry.”

The full consultation can be viewed here and lasts for twelve weeks.
