Disclosure in both public interest and private interest of worker


Re: Chesterton Global Ltd & Anor v Nurmohamed [2017] EWCA Civ 314

The claimant argued that his dismissal was automatically unfair under the Employment Rights Act 1996, s 103A, as it was due to a protected disclosure he had made. The issue was whether a disclosure, which was in the private interest of the worker who made it, became in the public interest, because it served the interests of other workers as well. The appeal was dismissed.

James Laddie QC, Thomas Linden QC and Thomas Kibling were involved in this case.
