The Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998 (PIDA) provides protection for whistleblowers. Under PIDA, employees who make “protected disclosures” can claim unfair dismissal if their contracts are terminated due to the disclosures. Further, the EU Commission has recently announced a new law that aims to increase protections for whistleblowers.

In this episode, we are joined by the EU Commission’s Policy Officer Maria Mollica to share guidance and insights on the upcoming EU Whistleblowing Directive. We also share guidance on complying with existing UK whistleblowing law.
