Solicitor could claim compensation for earlier detrimental treatment due to protected disclosures, even where he had been subsequently lawfully expelled from an LLP


Re: Roberts v Wilson Solicitors LLP & Ors UKEAT/0339/15/RN

The employment tribunal had erred in striking out a claim for compensation for post-termination financial losses, where the appellant solicitor, who had been lawfully expelled from a limited liability partnership, argued that he had suffered detriment due to previous protected disclosures under Employment Rights Act 1996 whistleblowing provisions. However, he would need to demonstrate that losses were attributable to the earlier unlawful treatment.

James Laddie QC was involved in this case
