Donald Trump Campaig

In August of 2016, she joined the Donald Trump campaign as a national phone bank administrator.

In order to to be employed, she was contingent on signing the NDA, which covers anything related to Mr. Trump, his family, his personal life or his business affairs.

[1]

Lawsuit

In November 2017, she sued the campaign for employment discrimination and defamation.

Denson claims she was discriminated against, harassed, and subject to a hostile work environment at the Trump campaign, especially after she was promoted to Hispanic engagement director soon after she was originally hired.

The NDA requires disputes to be settled in arbitration, so she is moving to have the NDA invalidated.

In her original lawsuit, Denson claimed the campaign accused her of illegally leaking portions of Mr. Trump's taxes.

She also claims Steve Bannon, a top adviser to the president-elect, offered her a job in the transition which did not materialize.

Denson is representing herself in both the original lawsuit and the lawsuit to invalidate the NDA.
