Protocol: New California law would give wronged workers a way out of NDAs
February 8. 2021
Protocol ran an article about SB 331 (co-sponsored by ERA and CELA), which expands prohibitions on NDAs to apply to all forms of discrimination and harassment.
ERA Senior Counsel for Workplace Justice & Public Policy Jessica Stender was featured in the article.
Jess Stender, a senior counsel with Equal Rights Advocates, said Ozoma's experiences "really shows why we need to prohibit these gag orders for all forms of discrimination."
"A worker who has been subjected to discrimination or harassment in the workplace has already suffered a trauma," Stender said. "So to impose a gag order on them and tell them 'you cannot talk to anyone about this traumatic incident you experienced' is to inflict yet another harm on them.
