Bloomberg offers to release 3 women from non-disclosures

Democratic Presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg seems to have had a change of heart ….

After rival Elizabeth Warren confronted the former New York City Mayor - during this week's presidential debate in debate in Nevada - about his company’s record regarding claims of workplace discrimination and harassment… specifically non-disclosure agreements... Bloomberg on Friday offered to release three women from non-disclosure agreements with his media company if they choose.

In a statement Bloomberg said the agreements concern "comments they said I had made," and that the women should contact his company for a release.

The billionaire businessman added that he was also ending the company's long-standing practice of requiring such confidentiality agreements when settlements are reached with complaining employees.

Saying: "I've done a lot of reflecting on this issue over the past few days, and I've decided that for as long as I'm running the company, we won't offer confidentiality agreements to resolve claims of sexual harassment or misconduct going forward," The agreements, Bloomberg said, "promote a culture of silence in the workplace and contribute to a culture of women not feeling safe or supported."
