If you have witnessed malpractice, dishonesty, or any wrongdoing in the workplace, you may feel the moral need to report it. This is called whistleblowing. You shouldn’t be punished for doing the right thing, that’s where Hatton James Legal can help.
I’m thinking about whistleblowing, what should I do?
If you have decided to become a whistleblower, it’s best to have a strong legal team behind you. It’s no secret that there are risks, and you could leave yourself open to some negative reactions. Cases of whistleblowers being demoted, pressured to resign, or harassed is not uncommon, but we believe you shouldn’t be punished for telling the truth. We will offer our services to protect your position and do everything we can to ensure your work and personal life aren’t suffering as a result of whistleblowing. We can advise the best course of action, no matter what field you work in.
How will it impact my career?
There are several legal paths to take with whistleblowing including entering a complaint with your employer, filing an unfair dismissal claim, or negotiating a settlement agreement which can include a sum of money and agreed to wording for future job references, so your career is not impacted. We understand that every situation is different, there’s no ‘one size fits all’ in whistleblowing situations, so we will guide you through every step of the process and keep you in the loop at all times.
