Paul Nicholls QC successful in EAT in whistleblowing case


The EAT has given judgment in Eiger Securities LLP v Korshonova UKEAT/0149/16 where a tribunal held that the claimant had been subjected to a detriment and disciplined for making a protected disclosure. The judgment deals with the requirement that there be a disclosure of information, considers the meaning of a breach of a legal obligation in circumstances where a claimant says that a party has acted in breach of guidance and considers the requirements of causation in a case where a person says that the reason for a detriment was making a protected disclosure.

Paul Nicholls QC appeared for the appellant, Eiger Securities.
