CDW Files Amicus Brief with Supreme Court to Urge Reconsideration of Chevron Deference

Washington, DC – On July 24, the Coalition for a Democratic Workplace filed an amicus brief with the Supreme Court in Loper Bright, a case considering the limits of Chevron deference. Our brief urges the Court to consider the impact Chevron deference has had on the predictability and workability of labor law for regulated parties.
The following statement can be attributed to CDW Chair Kristen Swearingen:
“The National Labor Relations Board’s record of flip-flopping on its policy interpretations with each change in administration has left employers unclear about their obligations under the law and employees unsure of their rights. Courts have often tolerated this vacillation in the name of Chevron deference. For this reason, we urge the Supreme Court to consider the Board’s reckless behavior as it decides on appropriate court deference to agencies.”
