For example, you informed colleagues of your negotiations before seeing the confidentiality clause and they understood that you had to keep the existence of the agreement confidential. If you sign a clause that you have already violated (or if you violate the clause after signing) and your employer finds out, they may argue that they no longer need to respect their side of the bargain. You can refuse to pay compensation or even try to recover money they have already paid you. It doesn`t matter if most of the claims mentioned don`t apply to you.

Employers should also be aware of the consequences of the possible failure of future employment settlement negotiations. In this area, advice is certainly needed, as there will inevitably be a dispute over whether an employer or worker acted improperly in the provision of a transaction contract, and it will be some time before the law is clear as to what is acceptable behaviour.
