Research launch | Let’s talk about confidentiality: NDA use in sexual harassment settlements

In-person event

Join us for the launch of research by our first Social Justice Pratitioners in Residence (SJPIR) (jointly held by Sharmilla Bargon of Redfern Legal Centre and Regina Featherstone of the Human Rights Law Centre).

After joining the law school in August 2023, Regina and Sharmilla set out to investigate the impacts of the Respect@Work Report around non-disclosure agreement (NDA) use in workplace sexual harassment disputes. They have produced a research report on the prevalence of NDA use and heard from lawyers and barristers on their experiences with NDAs of all shapes and sizes in settlement negotiations. This report also examines the rise of defamation responses to sexual harassment complaints and considers contractual enforceability of NDA terms. While legislative reform is one model to approach regulating NDA use, their report considers lawyers’ professional obligations as a largely unexplored avenue for reform.
