SRA Competency B


This new virtual classroom seminar will examine the issue of whistleblowing (formally known as making a protected disclosure under the Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998).

Expert speaker Professor Kathy Daniels will use a mix of case law and other scenarios to explore what is meant by a protected disclosure, and what we can, and cannot do, if an employee makes a protected disclosure.

  • Reference to recent case law
