Bloomberg’s decision came after being severely attacked by complaints of sexual or labor harassment he faced in his company.

Senator Warren – who compared Bloomberg’s debate with Trump on Wednesday – had challenged the former mayor of New York to authorize all of his employees who have confidentiality agreements with his company, for having filed allegations of sexual or labor harassment, may be relieved of these agreements.

Bloomberg initially opposed.

Former Vice President Biden has indicated that relieving three women of the pacts of silence is not enough and that he can still authorize all victims of those complaints to be released from confidentiality agreements.
