Timis and another v Osipov (Protect intervening)

Employment – Whistleblower detriment. It was open to an employee to bring a claim, under the s 47B(1A) of the Employment Rights Act 1996, against an individual co-worker for subjecting him to the detriment of dismissal and to bring a claim of vicarious liability for that act against the employer under s 47B(1B). The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in dismissing the appellants' appeals, further rejected the submission that the second appellant could not be liable to the respondent in relation to any instruction to dismiss him because the first appellant had given the instruction to dismiss.
