LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Wednesday that some employers were using non-disclosure agreements unethically and that the government would look further into the matter.

“Non-disclosure agreements cannot stop people from whistleblowing, but it is clear some empoyers are using them unethically,” May said responding to a question in parliament. She said the government would consult on possible reform to improve their regulation.
