National Labor Relations Act (29 U.S.C. s. 151) (NLRB Regulations) (NLRB Fillable Forms) (NLRB E-File)
Employers cannot discharge or otherwise discriminate against employees for exercising any of their rights or to discourage or encourage union membership.
- Employees have the right:
- to form, join or assist labor organizations;
- to engage in collective bargaining over wages, hours and other terms and conditions of employment;
- to engage in other concerted activity; and
- to refrain from any and all such activity.
Employers cannot dominate or interfere with the formation or administration of labor organizations.
Employers must bargain in good faith with labor organizations which represent its employees over wages, hours and other terms and conditions of employment.
Employers cannot discharge or otherwise discriminate against employees for filing unfair labor practice charges.
The National Labor Relations Board will investigate any unfair labor practice charges filed with it alleging that an employer or a union interfered with these rights.
To be timely unfair labor practices charges must be filed with the National Labor Relations Board within 6 months of the last act of discrimination or retaliation.
The NLRB also supervises elections to determine whether a majority of an employer's employees wish to have a certain labor organization represent them for purposes of collective bargaining.
