Antiboycott Law

(redirected from Anti-Boycott Law)

Antiboycott Law

A law that forbids companies in a country from boycotting foreign nations unless the domestic government authorizes it. It may also prohibit agreements deemed discriminatory on racial, gender, or other grounds. American antiboycott laws effectively prohibit American companies from refusing to do business with Israeli companies. However, this is no longer as important as it once was, as many Arab League countries no longer enforce their boycott of Israel.
