Employee's concerns raised purely out of self-interest were not qualifying disclosures for whistle-blower purposes

December 18, 2017

The EAT has upheld an employment tribunal’s decision that an employee who raised compliance issues purely out of self-interest did not make a qualifying disclosure for the purpose of whistleblowing protection under S.43B of the Employment Rights Act 1996. On the facts, the employee had not reasonably believed them to be in the public interest, and the reason for her dismissal was not that she had raised concerns but that she had behaved in a rude and irrational manner when communicating her concerns. (Parsons v Airplus International Ltd UKEAT 0111/17).
