WHISTLEBLOWING: True or false?

05 May 2017  

Employers need to take care before they discipline someone for knowingly making a false disclosure, warns Christopher Tutton

Whistleblowing has been in the news recently after it was reported that financial regulators were investigating the boss of Barclays, Jes Staley, after he admitted trying to unmask the author of two anonymous letters sent to the bank’s board. In his defence, Mr Staley said the whistleblower was trying to ‘maliciously smear’ and harass a senior colleague but Barclays told the media it would be formally reprimanding Mr Staley and he would face a ‘very significant’ cut to his bonus.
