We are still seeing issues around confidentiality in redundancies. If you are unsure about what you are allowed to say with regards to the reason for your redundancy, you should check with your employer. This issue tends to crop up when interviewing for a prospective employer.

Confidentiality usually prevents disclosure to any individual with the exception of professional advisers (e.g. solicitors) and spouses/partners. So any disclosure about your redundancy to a new employer would be deemed a breach of confidentiality and also a breach of your compromise agreement.

Care must be taken. If in doubt, seek advice and check the scope to which you can disclose such information.
