Jim says "As I said, innocent people do not make their staff sign Non Disclosure agreements"

It seems to be assumed that these are hush payments made to complainants to stop them going to the police with criminal allegations. An NDA which attempted to do this would probably not be enforceable. I suspect it is more likely that these are normal employment disputes. It is common to settle these by negotiation, with no admission of liability. For the employer, this avoids tying up a lot of time and resources dealing with an Employment Tribunal hearing, and for the employee it avoids the cost and uncertainty of such a hearing and the possible difficulty of proving their allegations to the required standard of proof. NDAs are a normal part of this and form part of the standard wording of most settlement agreements. It is often reasonable to have such a provision and I suspect is often put in and agreed without very much disagreement by either party. Don't take the existence of an NDA as an admission of guilt.
