The report, commissioned by the All Party Parliamentary Group for Whistleblowing is based on research carried out by a team from the University of Greenwich, who looked at 600 whistleblowing cases heard at Employment Tribunals over four years. The report finds that: 1. Whistleblowing cases continue to have a low success rate. 2. Whistleblowers suffer more and longer than before. 3. Legal support matters for whistleblowers but less whistleblowers than before have access to legal representation. 4. There is an important gender dimension for whistleblowers. 5. Whistleblowing cases commonly include a discrimination claim, yet those are the least successful whistleblowing cases. The research is funded by The British Academy, Leverhulme Trust, and the University of Greenwich.
