    Utah legislature passes a bill that makes company NDAs on sexual assault and harassment unenforceable – By Rosalie Chan (Business Insider) / Feb 16, 2024

    The Utah state legislature passed a bill on Friday that makes confidentiality clauses related to sexual assault and sexual harassment unenforceable.

    HB55, sponsored by Rep. Kera Birkeland, passed in Utah’s House and Senate with amendments this week. The next step is for the bill to be enrolled to be prepared in final form and then sent to the governor to sign, veto, or allow it to become law without his signature.

    It’s an important development in Utah, a state where some women have reported experiencing a culture of sexism and even harassment at companies they’ve worked at. Nationwide, confidentiality clauses, often in the form of nondisclosure and non-disparagement agreements, can be commonplace and keep employees from reporting cases of sexual harassment or assault at their company.
