  • A nondisclosure agreement requiring alleged civil rights violations be kept confidential, secret, and undisclosed;
  • A nondisparagement agreement about alleged civil rights violations or alleged unlawful conduct that would restrict an employee from negatively talking about their employer, including statements about the employer’s reputation, products, services, employees, and management; or
