Ware Discusses with Reuters the Future of Non-Disclosure Agreements in Sexual Harassment and Misconduct Cases

19 December 2017 Reuters News
Of Counsel Dabney Ware told Reuters in the article “Sexual Misconduct Outcry Makes U.S. Lawyers Rethink Confidentiality” that non-disclosure agreements will likely be on the wane in workplace sexual harassment settlements and that future confidentiality agreements might cover only the names of the parties and the amount paid in the settlement, while allowing allegations to be made public.
 
Ware said she expects non-disclosure agreements to continue to be used in less egregious cases, or when investigations into harassment claims are inconclusive. "We're still going to have places where it seems appropriate to keep things confidential, but it's going to be a lot more limited," she said.
