Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998


 The Act applies to people at work raising genuine concerns about crimes, civil offences (including negligence, breach of contract, breach of administrative law), miscarriages of justice, dangers to health and safety or the environment and the cover up of any of these. It applies whether or not the information is confidential and whether the malpractice is occurring in the UK or overseas.

The Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998 (c.23) is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom that protects whistleblowers from detrimental treatment by their employer. Influenced by various financial scandals and accidents, along with the report of the Committee on Standards in Public Life, the bill was introduced to Parliament by Richard Shepherd and given government support, on the condition that it become an amendment to the Employment Rights Act 1996.  ~ Wikipedia

Whistleblowing and the Law Part 1 – Gavin Millar QC and Dr Andrew Scott

David Burrows is author of Practice of Family Law: Evidence and Procedure (Jordans, 2012).

Durham County Council v Dunn [2012] EWCA Civ 1654 is a case about a civil claim arising from alleged abuse of a person at a young people’s centre; but for the family lawyer it operates on at least two levels alongside that:

First it provides summary of the rules on disclosure (CPR 1998 Part 31, and applicable FPR 2010 Part 21 and common law in family proceedings) as distinct from seeking information under Data Protection Act 1998; and why it is almost invariably more appropriate and effective to proceed under CPR 1998 Part 31 (especially once proceedings are issued).

Secondly, it provides a tour de force by Munby LJ on case law developments in public interest immunity, and his assessment of what is now the modern law. (This was a day or two before judgement in the Supreme Court in Re A (A Child)[2012] UKSC 60 (no public interest immunity for the child case informer); but that case does not seem to have established any real legal principle: it appears in Munby LJ’s summary as Re J, still in the Court of Appeal).  Click here to read more>>>
