Usually employment contracts prohibit employees from working for someone else whilst they are employed. If you have done this, you would likely be in breach of contract. Further, if your employer was aware of this, you would probably have been summarily dismissed.

If you are facing redundancy and have been provided with a settlement agreement by your employer, a common warranty within the compromise agreement is that you are not aware of anything that prevents your employer from entering into the severance agreement with you.

Obviously, if you had breached your employment contract in the manner outlined above, then you could not give this warranty. If you were to do so, you would also be in breach of warranty for which your employer is entitled to damages.

If you need legal advice on the terms of your employment contract or advice on the terms of your compromise agreement if you are being made redundant, please contact an employment solicitor at or visit one of the following pages on employment law:
