Protecting the Rights of Union Workers in New York

How Do U.S. Labor Laws Protect Me?

With a better understanding of U.S. labor laws, you can determine if you are being treated unfairly. Below, our New York City labor law attorneys provide a list of some of these violations. The National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) and other labor-related legislation were created to protect your rights as a laborer.

Some employer practices considered unlawful by the NLRA include:

  • Interfering, coercing, or restraining a worker from engaging in concerted activities (two or more employees acting in concert to protect rights in NLRA – with or without an existing union)
  • Interfering with the formation or administration of a labor organization
  • Discouraging membership in a union or any labor organization
  • Discriminating against workers who participate in unions or concerted activities
  • Firing or discriminating against workers who file charges with the National Labor Relations Board
  • Refusing to bargain with a union that is a legal representative of employees

Some union practices considered unlawful by the NLRA include:

  • Restraining or coercing workers in the exercise of their rights
  • Restraining or coercing an employer in the choice of its bargaining representative
  • Causing an employer to discriminate against a worker
  • Refusing to bargain with employer of its members
