Biaggi introduces Stop Silencing Survivors Act to ban Non-Disclosure Agreements


Women in New York may no longer have to suffer in silence after being harassed or assaulted at the workplace as new state legislation looks to ban non-disclosure agreements, commonly referred to as NDAs.

The bill, Stop Silencing Survivors Act, was announced on April 29 by state Sen. Alessandra Biaggi, Brooklyn state Sen. Andrew Gounardes, and Queens Assemblymember Jessica González-Rojas. The legislation would align New York with Washington, New Jersey and California, which have all recently passed laws to ban NDAs for workplace discrimination cases.
