With the surge of sexual harassment headlines, NYU Labor Center hosts a timely and balanced forum on the use of non-disclosure and non-disparagement agreements in the workplace. Featuring:

Professor Samuel Estreicher (NYU School of Law; of counsel to The Philbin Law Firm)

James Philbin (The Philbin Law Firm; former General Counsel, Maersk)

EEOC Commissioner Charlotte Burrows

Michael Delikat (Global Chair, Employment Litigation Practice -Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe)

EEOC Chair Victoria Lipnic

Zoe Salzman (Emery Celli Brinckerhoff & Abady) 

Sara Ziff (Founding Director - The Model Alliance)

Issues to be considered include:

  • What are the benefits of such agreements? Does their use shield or promote abusive manager actions and undermine employee rights?
  • What practices should employers, courts, and government enforcement agencies implement to monitor the use of NDAs?
  • The update on mandatory class action waivers.
  • What are best practices for companies for preventing sexual harassment claims and handling crisis management?
