Public Interest Disclosure (Prescribed Persons) (Amendment) Order 2010


SI 2010 No 7

](**This Order amends The Public Interest Disclosure (Prescribed Persons) Order 1999 (S.I. 1999/1549, the “1999 Order”) by amending the entry in the Schedule to the 1999 Order in relation to the Pensions Regulator.

Section 47B of the Employment Rights Act 1996 (c.18, the “1996 Act”) provides a worker with the right not to suffer detriment, as a result of making a ‘protected’ disclosure. A qualifying disclosure is a protected disclosure by virtue of section 43A of the 1996 Act (inserted by section 1 of the Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998).

This Order amends the 1999 Order so that a disclosure to the Pensions Regulator about matters relating to the Pensions Regulator’s objective of maximising compliance with the duties under Chapter 1 of Part 1 (and the safeguards in sections 50 and 54) of the Pensions Act 2008 (c.30) will be a qualifying disclosure
