WHISTLEBLOWING: Not one but two employers

02 June 2017  

Martin Cheyne and James English discuss a recent Court of Appeal decision on whether a worker can bring a claim for detrimental treatment against not only their normal employer but against a second organisation with which they have a working relationship

On 5 May 2017, the Court of Appeal handed down judgment in Day v Health Education England [2017]. This was a high-profile whistleblowing claim which may extend the protection given to junior doctors and other workers in training. This article examines the judgment and considers the implications for employers and workers in the NHS and beyond.
