Government announcement on misuse of NDAs

Monday 04 March 2019

The Government has announced a new consultation that aims to tighten the rules around non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) to prevent their misuse. Acas' response is included below.

Acas Chief Executive, Susan Clews, said:

"The misuse of NDAs has quite rightly been in the media spotlight and I'm sure many employers and workers would welcome greater clarity around their use.

"We're keen to work with the government to help develop clearer guidance on NDAs that reflects new changes in the law."
