The Guardian: Whistleblowers call out Channel 4 News over ‘gagging orders’.

Whistleblowers Gretchen Carlson and Zelda Perkins are among dozens of high-profile women calling on Channel 4 News to free all former staff from “gagging orders” amid mounting concern over the programme’s alleged use of confidentiality agreements to silence staff in equal pay, discrimination, harassment and victimisation cases... Employers often use NDAs and confidentiality clauses in the settlement of employment cases, but campaigners argue they can be misused to bury cases of sexual harassment, discrimination and racism.
