In the judgment of the EAT (Langstaff J) in Day v Health
Education England & Ors  UKEAT/0250/15/RN it has been held that doctors in training do not ordinarily
possess the requisite relationship in order to allow them to bring a claim
against Health Education England for whistleblowing. The decision is also of
considerable importance in clarifying the scope of the extended definition of
worker provisions found in s43K of the Employment Rights Act 1996.
Nicholas Siddall will provide an analysis
of the decision and its effect in a separate article to be posted shortly. A copy of the judgment can be found HERE.
