Anthony Sakrouge appears in the Law Society Gazette saying, "Firms may wish to review whether they need to report allegations of harassment or other discrimination they have previously taken the view did not need to be reported, and whether any of the drafting in their settlement agreements did interfere with the reporting of such matters."
Coming clean on NDAs is available to read on the Law Society Gazette website.
