TIME’S UP Demands Scott Rudin Release Former Staff From NDAs

Culture, Safety, Survivors


Today, Scott Rudin, a prominent producer in the entertainment industry, announced that he is stepping aside from his productions on Broadway, following allegations of workplace abuse under his leadership. 

Tina Tchen, president and CEO of TIME’S UP Foundation, provided the following statement:

“First and foremost, we owe a debt of gratitude to the brave employees who came forward with allegations of workplace bullying and harassment against Scott Rudin. For far too long, this abusive behavior has been a stepping stone to success in Hollywood and on Broadway but those days are over. 

“No one should have to endure the kind of abhorrent mistreatment that has been reported and live under fear of retaliation. We still don’t know the full extent of what occurred. That’s why TIME’S UP demands Scott Rudin release his former staff from any nondisclosure agreements. Doing so is critical to truly creating workplaces where every employee feels safe and respected across all industries.”
