Whistleblowing: Law and Practice, 3rd edition available to order

Whistleblowing: Law and Practice, 3rd edition by John Bowers, Martin Fodder, Jeremy Lewis, Jack Mitchell.

This book provides a detailed survey of the law relating to public interest disclosure. It examines how the system has developed since the coming into force of the Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998 (PIDA), and provides up-to-date practical guidance on the key issues that arise in practice. Analysing the legal framework in the area, both under PIDA and the disparate sources of law that can apply, it provides in-depth commentary on case law and legislative developments. It examines the structure of PIDA, litigation procedure and remedies under the Act, data protection, confidentiality, copyright, defamation issues, and the Human Rights Act 1998, as well as the contractual and fiduciary duties of employees, statutory obligations (both regulatory and criminal), and the Corporate Governance Codes.
