What information to limit on your resume if you are fired for breach of confidentiality

I was terminated by company XYZ without prior notice due to breach of confidentiality. I have yet to receive any written termination letter. Moving on, I have to start my job search and will have to update my resume with my experience and accomplishments at company XYZ. Am I binding to the confidentiality agreement after termination? Can I still list under accomplishments, the list of intellectual property that I generated while I was working at the company? if such a disclosure is to be used only for the purposes of obtaining employment and not for material profit?

The answer to your question is dependent upon the words of the agreement that you signed. Generally speaking, non-disclosure agreements restrict your ability to disclose what they protect, but the extent to which you are restricted is, as noted, dependent on what you signed. Given that you are reporting that they terminated you for a breach of the confidentiality (non-disclosure?) agreement, you should probably consult with counsel to be safe.
