Lumb v Greater Manchester Police (Whistleblowing, Protected Disclosures): EAT 2 Sep 2021

The claimant alleged that he had been subject to detriment and dismissal because he had made public interest disclosures. The only relevant disclosure for the purposes of the appeal was one alleged to have been made orally at a meeting on 4 October 2017. The employment tribunal failed to determine what the claimant had said at the meeting and properly analyse whether he made a disclosure of information for the purposes of section 43B Employment Rights Act 1996. The matter was remitted to be considered, if possible, by the same employment tribunal.
