The National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) is a federal law enacted in 1935 that protects the rights of employees to engage in collective bargaining and other union-related activities. Many employees are surprised that the NLRA covers them even if they are not part of a union.
Some of the key rights that employees have under the NLRA include:
It is important to note that the NLRA applies to most private sector employees, but not to government employees, agricultural workers, or independent contractors. Additionally, some states have their own labor relations laws that provide additional protections for employees.
The deadline for filing a charge with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is generally six months from the date of the alleged unfair labor practice.
It’s important to note that the deadline for filing a charge is strict, and missing the deadline can result in the loss of legal remedies. Therefore, it is important to consult with an attorney or the NLRB as soon as possible if you believe your rights under the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) have been violated.
