    Massachusetts Lawmaker Introduces Bill Barring Non-Disclosure Agreements

    A Massachusetts lawmaker has introduced a bill that would bar non-disclosure and forced arbitration agreements, calling them "silencing tactics."

    Democratic state Rep. Diana DiZoglio says her bill would cover issues related to discrimination, harassment and retaliation. She says the agreements currently in place send a message that those with enough money and power can "get away with these misdeeds."

    The Boston Herald reports her bill would also prevent companies from firing or not hiring employees if they refuse to sign such agreements.

    The Associated Industries of Massachusetts claims in its opposition to the bill barring arbitration agreements would "drag out disputes" in the workplace. They declined a request from the Herald for an interview.
