Dr Emma Chapman speaks out against non-disclosure agreements

McAllister Olivarius client Dr Emma Chapman spoke with the Evening Standard about her experience at University College London, where she experienced harassment, made a formal complaint against the university, and was then asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement while settling with the university. 

Dr Chapman refused to sign the non-disclosure agreement, saying, "I felt it was a moral obligation — it didn’t sit right with me to sit in silence while campaigning that we needed to break the silence."

Georgina Calvert-Lee of McAllister Olivarius said Dr Chapman's case could encourage others in her position to challenge confidentiality clauses.
