Deborah Scales, Employment Associate at Clarkslegal gives the first in a series on Whistleblowing and the law for employers. In this podcast Deborah discusses the legal definition of protected disclosure and what this means for employers.
Whistleblowing is back in the news following the Dyson report into the panorama interview in 1995 with Diana, Princess of Wales. Lord Dyson found Martin Bashir had acted deceitfully in the way he had obtained the interview with the Princess. Press attention also turned attention to the BBC and how it may have treated insiders who tried to expose Bashir.
