Non-Disclosure Agreements

Non-Disclosure Agreements for complaints of sexual misconduct, bullying and other forms of harassment.

Durham University has signed up to a UK Government pledge promising not to use Non-Disclosure Agreements to silence victims of sexual misconduct, bullying and harassment.

A Durham University spokesperson said:

“We will not tolerate sexual harassment, abuse or misconduct, or other forms of harassment and bullying within our community.

“Where this occurs, we will always ensure victim-survivors get the support they need to report allegations, rebuild their lives, and stay safe.

“We would not use Non-Disclosure Agreements to silence victim-survivors of sexual harassment, abuse or misconduct, or other forms of harassment and bullying.”
