Labor Law Lawyer Referral

Labor laws are designed to level the playing field between employers and employees and typically govern employer-union relationships. The laws give employers the ability to join labor unions and grant both employers and employees the right to participate in activities like strikes, picketing, lockouts, etc. They may engage in those activities to help see that their employment rights are being upheld.

Labor laws are governed by state and federal law, as well as judicial rulings and decision-making by administrative agencies. States are barred from interfering with federal labor laws and with the guidelines outlined by administrative agencies governed by federal law or the U.S. Constitution.

In 1932, the Norris-LaGuardia Act was enacted primarily to restrict federal courts’ ability to issue injunctions that would eliminate unions’ right to strike and participate in other activities. Congress enacted the National Labor Relations Act in 1935 in order to control interstate commerce and to regulate the bargaining power between employers and employees on a national scale. The act has twice been amended since then and the NLRA governs the majority of employers and workers in businesses that have an effect on interstate commerce.

The NLRA created the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to oversee disagreements between employers and employees that occur under the act’s regulations. The NLRB was also established in order to decide which labor organization will represent a group of workers. In addition, the NRLA set up a General Council that is meant to evaluate cases and prosecute against individuals who break the rules established under the act in front of the NLRB. The NLRA gives employees the right to join labor organizations as well. Under the act, employers and unions are barred from participating in certain “unfair labor practices” and are required to take part in good faith collective bargaining. The act protects one’s right to go on strike.

Some employers and workers are not governed by the NLRA and instead have their roles regulated by other federal and state laws. For instance, employers and employees in the railway and airline industries are subject to the Railway Labor Act. The Federal Service Labor-Management Relations Act governs workers and companies in the federal public sector. State laws often regulate the bargaining relationship between employers and workers not controlled by the NLRA.
