[49B  [The health service:] regulations prohibiting discrimination because of protected disclosure]

[(1)     The Secretary of State may make regulations prohibiting an NHS employer from discriminating against an applicant because it appears to the NHS employer that the applicant has made a protected disclosure.

(2)     An “applicant”, in relation to an NHS employer, means an individual who applies to the NHS employer for—

(a)     a contract of employment,

(b)     a contract to do work personally, or

(c)     appointment to an office or post.

(3)     For the purposes of subsection (1), an NHS employer discriminates against an applicant if the NHS employer refuses the applicant's application or in some other way treats the applicant less favourably than it treats or would treat other applicants in relation to the same contract, office or post.
