(c) Continued applicability of Federal, State, and Tribal Law

This chapter shall not be construed to supersede a provision of Federal, State, or Tribal Law that governs the use of pseudonyms in the filing of claims involving sexual assault or sexual harassment disputes.

Nothing in this chapter shall prohibit an employer and an employee from protecting trade secrets or proprietary information.
