Three more Google employees’ firings should be added to a complaint accusing the company of illegally retaliating against activists, the federal labor board’s top prosecutor said in a letter, reversing determinations made under the Trump administration.

National Labor Relations Board Acting General Counsel Peter Sung Ohr wrote Wednesday that the search giant “arguably violated” federal labor law by “unlawfully discharging” activist employees Rebecca Rivers, Paul Duke and Sophie Waldman.
