My previous employer laid me off and pressured me to sign an NDA. I chose not to, and by doing so, gave up the severance. The company was trying to bury information that would hurt the company's reputation and financial dealings. My finances were stable so I was able to turn down the severance. A couple other co-workers were laid off in the following weeks and they ended up signing the NDA even though they didn't want to. They needed the money. Has anyone found a legal workaround for a situation like this?
What was the damning information???
