A former Tramp Campaigner filed a class suit seeking to cancel all non-disclosure that the campaign has forced its employees to sign the documents, calling the documents "not applicable" and "irresponsible".
The request filed by former employee Jessica Danson of the American Arbitration Association says the CIS is too broad, vague and can be used to retaliate against employees complaining about legal complaints at the workplace. Trump – as a businessman, a candidate and a president – has long preferred these agreements as a defense against leakers and potential critics.
Current and former aides told The Washington Post in August that the widespread use of TRAM on the NDA is an example of a paranoid culture of leakage, audio recordings, and internal struggles that have been part of Trump's relationship for decades.
Denson's lawyers, David Bowles and Mori Jopson, believe that only Trump's campaign has thousands of employees, contractors and volunteers who were forced to sign. agreements that kept them secret and prevented them from making derogatory statements about Trump, his campaign, or his family.
This action is the biggest challenge for the use of the NMP by Trump so far, they said in an interview for "This may have implications for other campaign employees and administration officials who have signed the same or similar agreements. He believes the campaign uses these NDAs as a blow to workers who want to talk, and anyone who wants to make a comment that can be interpreted as critical to the president of the United States, "Bowles said. News for the first time reported on class claims. Trump's campaign did not respond to a request for a comment.
Denson's case, which is in the state court, federal court, and arbitration, began when she filed a case of discrimination in the workplace and harassment of the Trump campaign in 2017
She was hired by the campaign in August 2016 as administrator of a telephone bank and was promoted to a Spanish-language director, the court said. Bowles said he was then bullied, harassed and sexually discriminated.
The campaign attorney asked Dennson to pay $ 1.5 million in damages and court costs, and an arbiter ruled Denson had violated her NSA and ordered her to pay nearly $ 50,000. 19659014] Denson's lawyers said the action was vindictive and called it "fake arbitration", and Denson challenged the arbitrator's decision in the state and federal courts. complaint: the NDA itself.
Denson's NDA, presented as part of the court filing, presents a file for actions that are beyond the borders and at first sight forbids them forever. Example:
"During the term of your service and at any time thereafter, you promise and agree not to humiliate or humiliate the Company, Mr. Trump, any Trump company, family member or any other be a family member company or any asset, any of the above, or a product or service of any of the above, in any case from or in any of the Limited Funds and Contexts and to prevent this from your employees to do this.
The agreement also defines "confidential" information as "something that Mr Trump insists on being private or confidential, including, but not limited to, any information relating to privacy, political affairs and / or business matters". Trump or a family member. "
Dance's NDA is similar to the others from the Trump's orbit that were publicly disclosed – especially the campaign that gave Omarosa Manigual Newman as part of a job offer after she left the White House. She declined the job and did not sign the agreement. Since Manigolt Newman publishes his book "Derrage", told from inside the Trump administration, Trump filed an arbitration appeal against her claiming she had previously violated the NBA. White House Communications Officer Cliff Sims, who wrote another insider account, "Gadgets Team". Sims responded with their own legal measure, accusing the president of using the NBA for violating his first-choice rights.
The Trump's White House has also been reported to have asked senior White House officials to sign the agreements – an act that legal observers call unprecedented for civil servants who do not deal with highly classified information. ACLU called such agreements "unconstitutional and unenforceable."
In an interview for The Post in 2016, Trump – then still a presidential candidate – expressed his attachment to the NDA and his confidence in those he gave to employees in his campaign. 19659024] "I think they are extremely hermetic," said Trump. "And everyone who broke it – let's say it that way: it's so airtight that I've never had one. ,, You know, I've never had a problem with such things. "
