Articles like this need to include a strong call to action to reform the use of NDAs to restrict the timely reporting of sexual assaults, violence, or other serious illegal activities or incidents. There need to be strong limits on what companies can include, and also remedies to expedite vacating the portions of existing ones that allow cases like this to exist. Clearly Google/Alphabet/Deepmind all failed to hold up their end. The complainants need the legal ability to promptly escalate these cases to a more impartial outside enforcement entity without fear of contractual fallout.
That will require changes to the law to accomplish, and just pointing out the problem in an article isn't getting us any closer without pushing people in the direction of change. Every climate article has 5 lines of boilerplate text and most have a call to action, the same standards should apply here to NDAs and arbitration clauses.
