Am I under a duty to disclose allegations of misconduct that took place in my prior job to my new employer?

In a recent case in 2015, the Employment Appeals Tribunal held that in the absence of an express term in your contract or other documentation requiring such disclosure, you are not under an implied duty to inform your employer of the prior allegations. You need to check your new contract carefully to see if this may affect you.
