Guidance on non-disclosure agreements published


Share

The Law Society has published a guidance leaflet entitled, 'Non-disclosure agreements: what you need to know as a worker'. The guidance is part of a new public legal education initiative to help the public understand their rights when faced with non-disclosure agreements (NDAs).

The guidance summarises what an employer cannot stop a worker doing by using an NDA, and what information the worker needs to know about the restrictions that would be imposed before signing an NDA. It emphasises the importance of getting independent legal advice, and also explains what an NDA cannot stop individuals from doing. It explains that NDAs cannot be used to stop whistleblowing in the public interest.
