IRD confidentiality agreement warns against making negative statements
Before leaving International Relief and Development, some employees have been asked to sign confidentiality agreements. The Post obtained a copy of the agreement. At first, IRD said in a statement that the agreements didn’t violate the law and “none of these provisions would prevent an employee from complying with a subpoena.” After consulting with several lawyers, IRD reversed itself. “IRD has sought the advice of three outside law firms and is changing its policy to ensure that our policies conform to the latest developments in employment law,” the nonprofit said.
