I signed an NDA for early settlement at a UK University in 2018 after experiencing disability and gender discrimination, in addition to bullying. They suspended me for making a formal complaint and kept me on suspension with no review/progress until I terminated my contract and signed the NDA. I broke the NDA via social media and protected disclosures. They have attacked me via various legal threats that included extensive lies. They put themselves in a legally vulnerable position by doing this, so they employed a third party to attack me legally in 2020 (one that I had made protected disclosures to and hadn’t realised at the time was a business partner of the University). They made false allegations to the police about me (evidenced), used the police to harass me (evidenced), and I am now taking them all to court as a litigant-in-person as I have no legal funds. I now have testimonies from others treated similarly, and they know I’m probably going to go public after the legal action with mine and everyone else’s stories. They are entirely vicious in their attacks, and I believe I will have to move out of the UK once the legal action is complete. NDAs are covering a lot of lawbreaking and power abuse. I am happy to speak out about that and have no fear of these people. They have tried every trick in the book to shut me down, but I have simply become louder. They now have to answer to that in court.
