Holland's case against Bouchard asserts that Bouchard attempted to stifle employee efforts to advocate on behalf of their own interests, on their own time, and that Bouchard strongly implied that Holland's "employment could be at risk if Citizen's efforts… did not cooperate with attempts to stifle employee activities… and his TransPerfect employment [was] at risk as a result of his participation in speaking out against the Order compelling the involuntary sale of TransPerfect and in petition the Delaware State Legislature."
The proposed order, the lawsuit indicates "attempts to choke off any reasonable opportunity for employees to obtain judicial redress by directing that all actions by employees could only be brought before Chancellor Bouchard."
Citizens for a Pro-Business Delaware, a group made up of more than 1,700 members including employees of the global translation services company TransPerfect, as well as concerned Delaware residents, business executive and others, was formed in April of 2016 to focus on raising awareness with Delaware residents, elected officials, and other stakeholders, to ensure they understand the consequences the Court's ruling would have on the state and its underlying economy. The multifaceted campaign includes mailers, newspaper ads, field, lobbying, and more.
Citizens for a Pro-Business Delaware is at the Delaware State Fair in Harrington for the remainder of the week and continues to raise awareness about the lawsuit and the economic ramifications of this case. Go to DelawareForBusiness.Org for more information.
