Lane Johnson has filed charges against the NFL and NFL Players Association with the National Labor Relations Board, according to his attorney.
"Lane also filed a complaint against the NFLPA with the Department of Labor under the Labor Management Reporting and Disclosure Act," a statement from attorney Steve Zashin reads.
"During Lane's appeal, it became apparent that the written words in the collectively bargained Performance-Enhancing Substances ("PES") Policy, under which Lane was disciplined, are meaningless."
"The PES Policy, as written, guarantees rights, protections and due process to players in recognition of the enormous consequences of discipline," the statement continues.
"The NFL and the NFLPA have undermined these protections, leaving the players -- including Lane -- with a hollowed-out process devoid of any protections. The actions of the NFL and NFLPA violate federal law.
"Lane trusts that he can get a fair hearing with the NLRB and the DOL."
Johnson is currently serving a 10-game suspension for violating the league's performance-enhancing drugs policy for a second time. He believes the positive test was the result of taking an amino acid he purchased online that was contaminated. Johnson said at the time that he checked the contents on the label with an app provided by the NFLPA.
