Anyone is entitled to blow the whistle if they feel they have witnessed wrongdoing at work and will be protected by law if they do so. The UK Government defines whistleblowing as:
"When a worker reports suspected wrongdoing at work. It can be about things that aren't right, are illegal or if anyone at work is neglecting their duties."
However, employees must have a clear understanding of what circumstances are considered reasonable cause for blowing the whistle and the measures they should take.
