On June 11, the American Civil Rights Project (ACRP) despatched a warning letter to the Coca-Cola firm, alleging that the beverage company’s new range policy would require contracted law corporations to violate anti-discrimination law.
The letter asks the recently-beleaguered firm to both “publicly retract the discriminatory outside-counsel policies it announced in January” or, in any other case, “provide access to the corporate records related to the decision of Coca-Cola’s officers and directors to adopt and retain those illegal policies.”
Further down within the letter, the memo talks in regards to the mega smooth drink firm’s new policy “of contracting, refusing to contract, and altering the terms of signed contracts on the basis of the race of Coke’s counterparties, the [directors] have exposed Coke and its shareholders to material risk of liability.”
The letter goes on to quote current anti-discrimination legal guidelines, which it alleges that the brand new hiring policy violates: “These conditional threats are textbook violations of Section 1981. By adopting Policies of contracting, refusing to contract, and altering the terms of signed contraction on the basis of the race of Coke’s counterparties, the Coke D&O have exposed Coke and its shareholders to material risk of liability.”
The present “diversity” policy in place at Coca-Cola requires that the corporate “commit that at least 30% of each of billed associate and partner time will be from diverse attorneys, and of such amounts at least half will be from black attorneys.”
The Coca Cola firm has been steering itself in a “woke” route, which has drawn widespread criticism from its shareholders and from the general public basically.
