Are you a lawyer/barrister with a passion for public interest law and experience in fighting cases relating to a) company law in general and confidentiality clauses/breaches of contract specifically and b) the Criminal Justice Act in general and laws governing disclosure specifically and c) whistleblower protection based on existing law? Then would you be interested in getting involved with Whistleblowers Ireland?
We are getting an increased number of calls from one particular type of whistleblower – those with details of white collar crime who a) want to breach confidentiality clauses they have had to sign by the employer they want to blow the whistle on and b) want to know to what extent exisitng laws in Ireland can protect them against criminal and civil prosectution and c) intend taking their employers to court for issues including constructive/unfair dismissal.
If this is something you would be interested in helping out on, we would like to engage you by emailing legal enquiries from would-be whistleblowers. We would act as the middle men – pass your replies back to the would-be whistleblower and should they need to engage your services further down the line, we would pass them your contact details if appropriate.
We already have one junior barrister who has been helping us out but they are not always available and we want to build a contacts base among solicitors and barristers who have a passion for public interest-related legal issues.
If this is something that is of interest to you or anyone you know – please get in touch by either calling 087 919 9113 or emailing contact @ irishwhistleblower.com
