What is Confidentiality?

Confidentiality is important for both you and your employer. Your employer will hold confidential information about you and you’ll have access to personal information about your employer. You should discuss, with your employer, who you can share information with, for example, their doctor, and under what circumstances. No information should be shared with anyone against your employer’s wishes. This includes sharing personal information about your employer on social media, such as Facebook or Twitter. However, in extreme circumstances, for example a medical emergency, or if you feel there’s a safeguarding issue, then you may have to share personal information without your employer’s consent. Confidential information should always be kept securely so that other people aren’t able
to access it.
