Confidentiality is tantamount to employment and is something we, as employment lawyers always advise upon when it comes to redundancies. We are still seeing that the scope of confidentiality in UK employment law and the repercussions for its breach are not being appreciated. Prospective employees should be aware of what they can say to prospective employers at job interviews. This ties in with what someone can disclose on their curriculum vitae (CV), for example by way of accomplishments and or projects he or she has worked on for former employers. The fact that something is on one’s CV does not mean that one can disclose confidential information or trade secrets.

We would advise that prospective employees consider carefully the content of their CVs and what is disclosed during interviews with prospective employers because they could be in breach of their employment contract as well as the terms of a compromise agreement, where redundancy was taken.

If you require further information about UK employment law or seek clarification with regards to confidentiality or other post-termination provisions, please contact us at or visit one of the following pages on employment law:
