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 Chair Victoria Lipnic
Zoe Salzman (Emery Celli Brinckerhoff & Abady)

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?
