Former Pollen employees were asked to sign an ‘NDA masked as a severance agreement’ – TechCrunch
Pollen, the U.K.-headquartered travel and events marketplace, describes its company culture as built on principles of “freedom” and openness, including a well-publicised pay transparency policy.
However, that doesn’t appear to always be the case with regards to the treatment of recently departing employees.
In addition, multiple sources tell TechCrunch the severance contracts feature a broader non-disparagement clause.
“It was basically an NDA masked as a severance agreement,” said one former Pollen employee, who asked not to be identified.
Founded in 2014 and previously called Verve, Pollen operates in the influencer or “word-of-mouth” marketing space.
