Employees should be aware of the extent of Confidentiality in Settlement Agreements

We want to reinforce the fact that if you are an employee being made redundant, you must be made aware of the confidentiality clause in a settlement agreement as well as in your employment contract. In many cases, the confidentiality provision in the settlement agreement is just a shortened version of that contained within the contract of employment and the employee might be led into thinking that that is all there is by way of confidentiality. Make sure that the employment contract is reviewed at the same time to ensure the employee understands the full implications of his or her obligations of confidence.

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