Fidelity – Implied Duty of

It is an implied (and may also be stated as an express term) term in a contract of employment, that an employee must act in an honest and faithful manner and not do anything  that would be perceived as harmful to the employer’s legitimate business interests, for example, disclosing confidential commercial information to a competitor. An employee who acts in a manner contrary to the duty of fidelity could be viewed as acting in Breach of Contract.
