Recently, in the case of Anastasiou v Western Union Payment Services, the Employment Appeal Tribunal (“EAT”) held that on the issue of causation in a whistleblowing claim, the person who subjected the Claimant to a detriment/disadvantage had to have knowledge of the protected act, except in rare cases where a more senior manager orders another member of the management team to carry out the detriment or dismissal without providing any background information about the initial whistleblowing disclosure.
