Whistleblower need not prove criminal or civil wrongdoing

Babula v. Waltham Forest College

Court of Appeal 

“Where an employee made a claim for unfair dismissal asserting that the dismissal was to be regarded as automatically unfair because he had made a protected disclosure, it was sufficient that he reasonably believed the matters that he relied on amounted to a criminal offence, or founded a legal obligation. He did not have to be able to point to an actual criminal offence or to an actual legal obligation.”
