Congress Passes Law Restoring Victims’ Voices, Banning NDAs in Sexual Harassment Cases, Kim Elsesser, Forbes Magazine.
Congress recently voted to invalidate nondisclosure agreements (NDAs) that businesses may require sexual abuse survivors to sign. These NDAs do not allow employees to speak about harassment or assault they experienced on the job.
The Speak Out Act restores the voices of survivors of these survivors. It is hoped that stopping these NDAs not only gives survivors a voice, but may deter future sexual harassment and assault events at work.
