Is It Time for People to Breach Their NDAs and Speak Truth to Power?
Elie Mystal, writing for Above the Law, discusses some top factors to remember when dealing with a sexual predator who has signed you to a non-disclosure agreement.
Among those factors are: the need for the predator to show actual injury, the information disclosed has to be secret and confidential, courts will consider public policy, and courts will consider unequal bargaining power.
“If you’ve signed a non-disclosure agreement, it’s a risk to violate it. You might get sued, you might be forced to pay back some money,” she warns. “Or you might set liberating case law that allows more of these claims to come forward.”
