ACC Files Amicus Brief with NLRB Opposing Racially Charged Language

ACC Position: 

In November, ACC filed an amicus brief in response to a request from the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) regarding whether it should reconsider its standards for protection of offensive statements of a racial or sexual nature under the National Labor Relations Act. Previously, ACC filed an amicus in Cooper Tire & Rubber Company v. National Labor Relations Board, opposing the NLRB’s protection of employees who participate in harassing and discriminatory behavior. In its most recent brief, ACC argued the NLRB should revisit its precedents for protecting racially and sexually offensive speech in order to remove conflicts with anti-discrimination laws and better accommodate corporate diversity and inclusion efforts.
