Well, I don't trust the person at all. This whole ordeal its regarding sexual harassment at the work place. I was going to press charges, but I realize that a lot of people that I am close with will lose their job. So the person agreed to give me a monetary compensation in order to move forward. By doing so I was supposed to sign this gag order to never mention anything again. However he has been playing games with me for the past 2 weeks. Now apparently he tried to black mail me by saying that some crackhead at the job got caught forging documents and he lost his job. He claims that when I worked there I committed the same (however I am secure enough to know I am not worried about that) but I was told that after I signed the gag order that he was going to make me sign something else to give back the compensation or that he would ruin my career. Now that I found out ahead of time I confronted them and they have agreed to include in the gag order that he will not nor the employer try to tarnish my name in my industry with he or say things. Unfortunately in this business our reputation is everything

Thank you for your reply.
I understand, so you want to insert a clause in the gag order of mutual non-disparagement including waiver of any claims of anything that may have occurred prior to and up to the date of signing the agreement, meaning he could not make any claims against you for anything that allegedly occurred before the date of signing the agreement.
If you are worried and do not trust this guy, then you need to insist on inclusion of a clause saying exactly what I stated above.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
