Protected Disclosures Do Not Make Employees Untouchable

Employees need to be clear that any claim that they wish to advance under the Protected Disclosures Act 2014 will fail unless they can show that the penalisation or dismissal about which they complain occurred as a direct consequence of having made a protected disclosure.

The employee is not protected by this Protected Disclosures Act 2014 simply because he claims to have made a protected disclosure.

Because it may well be the case that an employee is disciplined or dismissed for reasons wholly unconnected to any alleged protected disclosure-for example, conduct, competence, performance, redundancy.

Both the Labour Court and Workplace Relations Commission confirmed this was the case in a case involving a civil servant in Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection v Hosford.
