Hello, my name is***** am a solicitor on this site and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. How long did they work there for and did they work under the other terms of the contract, like the role, pay, any other specific terms?
The fact that a contract was not signed does not mean that it was not valid and cannot be enforced. What you could argue is that there has been an implied acceptance of its terms. This means that he has accepted it through his actions, even if he did not sign anything. This would usually occur where he has started to work under the terms of the specific contract. So if he has agreed to work in the role his contract stated he would work in, accepted payment under the contract, took holidays and did anything else which would have followed these terms, then there could be an implied acceptance of that contract and he could still be bound by all the terms within it, even if it was not signed at the start.

No, these are all conditions which they would need to be bound by under contract. There will be some confidentiality rules which may apply under law anyway, such as under data protection, but these are in the event he has in his possession personal details about individuals.
