The public interest disclosure (‘whistleblowing’) legislation was implemented in the wake of several high profile disasters (including the Zeebrugge ferry disaster and the Piper Alpha oil platform explosion) which it was perceived at the time may have been averted had someone in the relevant organisations spoken out about the state of affairs which led to the disaster.

This course examines the fundamental legal concepts relevant to this area of law and focuses on several key cases in the area. It also considers the variety of claims available to an individual who ‘blows the whistle’ in the workplace and the potential awards which may be made.
