Donald Trump’s Campaign
In August 2016, she joined Donald Trump’s campaign as a national telephone bank official. In order to get a job, she was conditional on signing a non-disclosure agreement, which covers anything related to Mr. Trump, his family, his personal life or his business affairs.
In November 2017, she filed a lawsuit against the campaign of job discrimination and defamation. Denson claims that she was discriminated against, harassed and exposed to a hostile work environment in the Trump campaign, especially after she was promoted to Hispanic engagement manager shortly after she was originally appointed. The non-disclosure agreement requires the settlement of disputes in arbitration, so it moves to cancel the non-disclosure agreement.
In the original lawsuit, Denson alleged that the campaign illegally accused her of leaking parts of Mr. Trump’s taxes. She also claims that Steve Bannon, the president-elect’s top adviser, offered her a job in the unfulfilled transition. Dinson represents herself in both the original lawsuit and the non-disclosure agreement.
