About the seminar
While the PIDA offers remedies to those who are victimised or dismissed for raising concerns, it still doesn’t change the culture of work so that a worker feels secure in speaking out. So at a seminar organsied by the IER on Tuesday 20th July 2010, academics, lawyers and trade unionists were asked the question: do industrial relations in the UK still preserve a culture of secrecy?

The seminar began with an excellent presentation from Catherine Hobby, who outlined the background to the introduction of the Act, before commenting on the Act’s strengths and weaknesses, on case law developments and on areas for future reform.
