Important principle in whistle-blowing law to be considered by the Court of Appeal
On Wednesday 13 June 2018 the Court of Appeal will hear the case of Kilraine v London Borough of Wandsworth. Cloisters’ barristers Chris Milsom and Rachel Barrett represent the appellant, Karen Kilraine, who is challenging the decision of the employment tribunal to dismiss her whistle-blowing claim.
A key point in the appeal is whether the law distinguishes between disclosures containing mere “allegations” as opposed to “information” for the purposes of whistle-blowing protection. The Court of Appeal will be asked to review the influential earlier case of Cavendish Munro Professional Risks Management v Geduld  IRLR 39.”
