The BBC has issued the following statement regarding the Respect at Work Review.

“The BBC is currently exploring what it is like to work at the Corporation with regards to respect and appropriate behaviour. No staff past or present have been prevented from contributing to the Review including those who have signed compromise agreements that may have included confidentiality clauses.

“Like many other employers, the BBC sometimes uses such agreements to settle disputes. The BBC ensures that every employee has independent legal advice before entering into a compromise agreement – there is no question of their being forced into signing one without understanding its implications.”
