About NLRB


The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is comprised of a team of professionals who work to assure fair labor practices and workplace democracy nationwide. Since its creation by Congress in 1935, this small, highly respected, independent Federal agency has had daily impact on the way America's companies, industries and unions conduct business. Agency staff members investigate and remedy unfair labor practices by unions and employers. They also conduct elections to determine whether employees wish to be represented by a union, and if so, which union.

The NLRB seeks astute, dedicated professionals in a variety of disciplines to carry out its mission nationwide. Use the information on the linked pages below to find out how you can be part of our team.
