I am working in the software company.

I would like to check, one of the clause in employee contract term is "Confidentiality and Intellectual Property" .

I would like to clarify, what is the worst action that the company can do to the employee if he/she breached the employee contract under this clause?

Is it dismisal?

You have to read the contract again see whether there is any penalty clause for breaching the confidentiality clause.

Depending on the severity of the impact to the company's business, image and reputation, such breach of confidentiality agreement may lead to dismissal.

In certain cases the company may also take legal action against the employee.
