UPDATE: This Precedent does not take into account special requirements that apply to relevant firms (UK deposit-takers with assets of £250m or greater, PRA-designated investment firms, insurance and reinsurance firms within the scope of Solvency II, the Society of Lloyd’s and managing agents) as a result of the new rules set out by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) in PS24/15 PRA: 'Whistleblowing in deposit-takers, PRA-designated investment firms and insurers' and 'PS15/24 FCA: 'Whistleblowing in deposit-takers, PRA-designated investment firms and insurers'. A new Precedent to be used in situations where these rules apply will be added to Lexis®PSL Employment in due course. For further information on the special requirements, see Practice Note: FCA and PRA whistleblowing requirements—one minute guide.
