A former Fox News star is making waves in California. Gretchen Carlson is working with Democrats who are promoting a non-disclosure law, that reportedly eases the undue burden placed on employees while helping employers hide misconduct.

The bill would prohibit employers from forcing people into nondisclosure agreements related to sexual misconduct in order to get or keep a job.
It also would bar employers from requiring forced arbitration agreements, which can compel employees to settle workplace complaints instead of going to court.
The bill, AB3080, would not prevent existing arbitration or nondisclosure agreements from being enforced.
Carlson, a victim of sexual harassment, and alleged undue termination herself is a major proponent of this law. Opponents have attacked this bill as a job killer.
