Re: Scott Altman

Scott Altman published an op-ed on whether non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) in sexual harassment and assault help or hurt women. "NDA bans like California’s give victims a choice to come forward, either immediately or later, without compromising their privacy. In this sense, NDAs undermine, rather than enhance, victim choice," he wrote."California’s experience suggests that NDA bans can protect victims and still root out the worst problems associated with NDAs. For our antidiscrimination laws to work, justice needs to be done and to be done visibly."
