Women and Equalities Committee launches inquiry into use of NDA’s in harassment and discrimination case.

In November 2018, the Women and Equalities Committee launched a full-scale inquiry into non-disclosure agreements (NDA’s) in harassment and discrimination cases, which is a follow on from their sexual harassment in the workplace inquiry. The new inquiry has a broader scope, to focus on the use of NDA’s in all or any form of alleged harassment and discrimination, not just that of a sexual nature. It will cover a much wider scope of actions such as pregnancy discrimination and racist treatment.


The committee are looking to discover whether certain types of harassment or discrimination NDA’s are used more, whether NDA’s should be abolished entirely or restricted and if any safeguards can be developed to halt the unethical use of NDA’s.
