High Road Business Protecting Workplace Safety


The American Sustainable Business Network (ASBN) and Main Street Alliance (MSA) represented by Democracy Forward have filed an Amicus Brief in support of the defendants-Appellees in the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in the case of ALLSTATES REFRACTORY CONTRACTORS, LLC, Plaintiff-Appellant, v. MARTIN J. WALSH, et al., Defendants-Appellees. The case involves a challenge to the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s authority to set safety standards. The challenge failed in the US District Court in the Northern District of Ohio, but is currently on appeal before the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.

ASBN and MSA believe that the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) plays an important role for setting and enforcing workplace safety regulations which is a crucial for all businesses and their workers.
