Susan Clews responds to Government's NDA announcement

Monday 22 July 2019

The Government has announced proposed new legislation that will tackle the misuse of Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs). Acas' response is included below.

Acas Chief Executive, Susan Clews, said:

"The misuse of NDAs is unacceptable. We support this proposed legislation that will help clarify the law around the use of NDAs and prevent them from being misused to intimidate or silence victims of illegal and abusive behaviour at work.

"Acas is developing new guidance on the appropriate use of NDAs that will incorporate any new changes in the law and help give employers and employees greater clarity on their use."
