Re The Mirror article, it shows a lack of understanding of stress-related illness to suggest that someone can’t really be ill because they are able to work. By that logic, anyone alleging workplace bullying (or even domestic abuse) must be making it up if they can continue working. It is also not clear why the complainants want action taken against just this lawyer and not others (including their own who were involved in the negotiations). This NDA was clearly never enforceable anyway- better to concentrate on misuse of NDAs now.
