The National Labor Relations Act was enacted by Congress in 1935 to regulate private and public sector labor and management practices and to permit employees to collectively bargain with their employers. Certain aspects of the NLRA apply to workplaces regardless of whether there is a union presence in the workforce. In recent years, the National Labor Relations Board has become increasingly proactive in investigating and bringing claims arising from employee handbook language and social media policies maintained by employers, confidentiality and non-solicitation agreements.
