Q & A – Who oversees the NLRA?

Q: Who oversees the NLRA?

A: The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) oversees the NLRA.  The Board has two roles.  One role is to administer elections for union representation. The other role is to determine if there are any violations of the NLRA. The Board first investigates unfair labor practice complaints to determine if they believe a violation has taken place.  If they believe a violation of the NLRA has occurred, they would charge the employer with a violation and then hold a hearing to make a final determination.  This determination can be appealed by either party.
