Ifeoma Ozoma, from The New York Times shared her knowledge with the others regarding her most recent observations.
She claimed the organisation was attempting to censor her, assisted in the creation of California’s new Silenced No More Act. Today, Ozoma writes in The New York Times on why she thinks nondisclosure agreements (NDAs) should not be used to hold whistleblowers in place — but Pinterest has announced that it will no longer require employees to sign NDAs that prohibit them from discussing such matters, effective immediately.
According to the company’s global head of communications, Pinterest would “not ask workers to sign agreements that would prohibit them from talking about their personal experiences at Pinterest until they quit.” However, it appears that NDAs for other types of company secrets will continue to exist.
Ben Silbermann, the CEO of Pinterest, is said to have released a staff memo this morning about the Silenced No More Act, in which he expressed his support for the bill. According to Protocol, he reportedly wrote, “Regardless of what happens in the legislature, whether the bill goes forward or not, we’re going to follow the policies behind the proposed legislation.” In December, Silbermann was one of the executives sued for allegedly creating a toxic workplace.
