The claimant was dismissed by reason of gross misconduct and in particular.
In a situation when an employee makes a protected disclosure and subsequently, while the protected disclosure is being investigated goes on sick leave due to stress, could a lowering of the employee's income because they will be paid illness benefit (which is lower than their normal salary) constitute penalisation of the person making the protected disclosure?
If a complaint of bullying forms part of a protected disclosure must we conduct two separate investigations?
I heard about a Northern Ireland whistleblowing case recently where the claimant's case failed because it was not made in good faith. I thought that requirement no longer applied in the UK or Ireland? What is the situation in Ireland - must a whistle-blower make allegations in good faith or might they be motivated by greed etc.
Can an employee be legally dismissed for whistleblowing?
