“Issues of racial harassment and discrimination are central to employees’ working conditions, and the National Labor Relations Act protects employees’ right to advocate for change,” she said in a statement seen by Bloomberg.

“Through this complaint, we seek to enforce the act and protect workers’ rights to speak up about these important issues.”
