The Me Too & Black Lives Matters movements surfaced the widespread nature of harassment and discrimination in the workplace. It also shined a spotlight on the negative impact of non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) on the perpetuation of harmful practices. NDAs have been routinely included in separation agreements and in employment contracts and they limit the ability of current and former employees to say anything negative about a company, with few if any exceptions.
Take a look at these two case examples and then read through the articles listed below and tell us what you see as the ethical dilemma with NDAs and what you would propose instead, as a HR professional.
