NBC made the decision to free former workers from non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) regarding sexual harassment that they may have experienced on the job. It was announced on Rachel Maddow’s program on MSNBC that any former employee who fears coming forward and reporting instances of sexual harassment that they may have encountered while working for the company should contact the parent company, NBC Universal, and request to be released from their non-disclosure agreements. According to Ronan Farrow’s claims in his latest book, “Catch & Kill,” at least seven female employees from NBC signed NDAs, which include numerous ones involving Matt Lauer.
Non-disclosure agreements protect companies from employees or former workers and prevent them from releasing sensitive or confidential information about their business practices or the products they create or manufacture. Unfortunately, the NDAs traditionally covered any instances of sexual harassment from being revealed by past or present employees who may have feared reprisal. At NBC, employees who dealt with sexual harassment while working for the company may now report the abuse they experienced and may gain closure in the process.
