Administrative Officer (Office Manager)

National Labor Relations Board

About the organization

The NLRB is an independent federal agency created in 1935 to administer and enforce the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), the primary federal statute governing labor-management relations in the private sector. The NLRA protects the right of employees to choose for themselves, without interference by employers or unions, whether to form, join, assist, or collectively bargain through a labor organization, and to otherwise join together for their mutual aid or protection, or to refrain from all such activity. The NLRB enforces these statutory rights to remedy the known inequality of bargaining power between employees and their employers, to promote the full freedom of association of workers, and to strengthen the Nation’s economy by promoting the peaceful resolution of disputes that might otherwise cause disruptions to commerce.
