- How many ET1 forms has the Prudential Regulation Authority (‘PRA’), which is part of the Bank of England (the ‘Bank’) been sent by the Employment Tribunal in its capacity as a Prescribed Person under the Public Interest Disclosure Act 2013 (and not as an employer) in the years 2016/17 and 2017/18?
The PRA did not receive any ET1 forms in the Bank’s financial year 1 March 2016 to 28 February 2017 and received 1 ET1 form in the Bank’s financial year 1 March 2017 to 28 February 2018.
- If as a result of being sent ET1 forms by the Employment Tribunal in the two years 2016/17 and 2017/18, has the PRA contacted any of the relevant claimants who filed claims to the Employment Tribunal under the Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998 to follow up the public interest matters, and if so, how many claimants did the organisation contact?
As a general rule, all cases where a whistleblowing disclosure is received are contacted by the PRA. The exceptions to this are (a) where disclosure is anonymous, (b) the author has asked us not contact them or (c) where the PRA considers that it would appear to be unsafe to contact the author.
