New Law Society public guidance for non-disclosure agreements

Makbool Javaid

The Law Society has launched a new public legal education initiative to help the public understand their rights when faced with non-disclosure agreements (NDAs). A new set of guidance will be made available directly to the public and disseminated through partner organisations and law firms. This follows concerns of the Women and Equalities Committee that victims of potentially unlawful discrimination and harassment may be reluctant to report their experiences. Part of the new guidance is new online advice ‘NDAs and confidentiality agreements – what you need to know as a worker’ which outlines what a non-disclosure agreement or confidentiality clause may include, and what a workers rights are.
