If you have been abused at work and want to go, your goal is to negotiate a valid transaction contract, including fair financial compensation for your abuse. Transaction agreements are legally binding documents and have been included in the Employment Rights Act (1996). Most transaction agreements contain a gag or confidentiality clause. A confidentiality clause generally requires you not to disclose to other co-workers, friends or potential employers that a transaction contract is being negotiated and/or the terms or subjects of the transaction contract. In most cases, you are prevented from passing this information on to third parties, with the exception of close family members, your new advisors or for legal or tax purposes, in order to disclose conditions such as HM Revenue – Customs (HMRC). Most clauses apply from the moment negotiations begin and many employers require you to confirm that you did not disclose the relevant information before signing the agreement.
