Whistleblowing: complaint about cramped working conditions could be protected disclosure

The EAT has held that a tribunal was wrong to strike out a whistleblowing complaint at a preliminary hearing because the employee had no prospects of successfully showing that she reasonably believed her complaint about her cramped working conditions was in the public interest.

Remitting the case back to the tribunal, the EAT held that this issue could only be determined after a consideration of all the evidence at a substantive hearing.
