Gagging Orders

Share This

Gagging orders or non-disclosure agreements (NDA) are widely used across industries, including film, advertising, finance, universities and the health service, typically to prevent workers from making information public. They are legally drafted contracts which can apply to sensitive commercial information or trade secrets, but can also be used to prevent the spreading of anything likely to damage an organisation’s reputation. You will usually find it as a confidentiality clause in a settlement agreement.
