The Women and Equalities Committee holds the fifth session as part of its inquiry into the use of non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) in discrimination cases.
Purpose of the session
Those with experience in HR, corporate governance and law and ethics will be questioned on:
- whether better handling of discrimination complaints could help to reduce the use of settlement agreements and NDAs in such cases;
- the role of boards and executives in overseeing the use of NDAs in discrimination cases;
- ethical considerations for lawyers and others preparing and advising on NDAs;
- whether safeguards and systems could be implemented to prevent misuse.
