Unfair Workplace Practices
An unfair labor practice is any activity performed by an employer or union
that goes against the National Labor Relations Act (NRLA). There are a
variety of employer practices that would be considered to hinder an employee’s
labor rights. The categories that are banned by the National Labor Relations
Board (NLRB) include:
Interfering, Restraining, or Coercing: including making threats, questioning
employee’s rights, and making false allegations to workers who are
forming a union
Domination Of Labor Group: an employer can not try to interfere with any
Discrimination Based On Labor Activity: an employer may not discriminate
based on employees interest/disinterest in membership of any labor organization
Punishment for Filed Charges to the NLRB
If you believe your employer has violated one or more of these categories,
please do not hesitate to contact Stewart & Musell, LLP. Our experienced
employment attorneys are here to make sure you know your rights. Call
