In the winter issue of Precedent, Toronto civil litigator Andrew Pinto writes about the growing frequency of non-disparagement clauses, which prevent terminated employees from saying anything negative about where they worked. In the event of a violation, employees could be forced to return their entire cash settlement to their former employer.

Here, Precedent speaks to Pinto about why these clauses are so dangerous and how likely they are to hold up in court.
