Unfair Labor Practices - Experienced Pennsylvania Labor Attorney Explains

Cut through the confusion. Get straight answers about unfair labor practices

Numerous labor laws exist in the United States to protect the rights of workers. Unfortunately, these laws are often violated, particularly by employers who ignore workers' rights or blatantly break these rules and regulations.

These forms of workplace legal issues generally fall under the term "unfair labor practices." In most cases, unfair labor practices violate the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) or other federal labor laws.

Who investigates allegations of Unfair Labor Practices in Pennsylvania?

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) officially investigates claims of unfair labor practices. Specifically, this federal agency decides whether there has been a violation of any federal or state labor laws. Most initial NLRB investigations take 30 days.

But if the NLRB initially determines there was no labor violation, that does not mean the investigation is over. The person who claimed a company engaged in unfair labor practices can appeal the NLRB's initial finding. That's why it's critical you have an experienced Pennsylvania labor relations lawyer on your side, fighting for your rights.

What are common examples of Unfair Labor Practices in Pennsylvania?

Unfair labor practices cover a wide range in Pennsylvania. Such legal issues should not be confused with wage and hour claims, which are a different type of workplace legal issue that we also handle at O'Malley & Langan.

Some of the most common examples of unfair labor practices in Pennsylvania include:

  • Employers interfering with the formation of a labor union
  • Employers discriminating against an employee for filing a complaint
