There seems to be a lot of misconception in relation to confidentiality obligations when it comes to being made redundant. It should not be a surprise to employees that they have to keep the terms of a compromise agreement confidential along with any information they come across during their employment.

As employment law solicitors, we stress that confidentiality is one of the most important provisions of a compromise agreement because a breach would mean a breach of contract. Moreover, the employee in breach would have to repay the redundancy payment (ex gratia payment) as a debt for breach, or this amount would be set off against any award made to employee.

If you require further information on confidentiality provisions or on the terms of your compromise agreement, please contact us at or visit one of the following pages on employment law:
