Details: Laffey, Bucci & Kent partner Brian Kent will discuss non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) and their impact on victims of abuse during a webinar presented by The Woolf Group. The panel discussion is titled “NDAs – Permission to Victimize?” and will be moderated by Bill Woolf, principal of The Woolf Group. Other panelists include Gretchen Carlson, co-founder of Lift Our Voices, and Elizabeth Carlock Phillips, executive director of The Phillips Foundation.
The discussion will focus on how NDAs can prevent victims from coming forward and from getting justice. Participants will examine the silencing effect that NDAs often have on those who have experienced abuse and how this enables abuse to continue to occur.
