Notice of Appointments of Individuals To Serve as Members of Performance Review Boards

Type: Notice
Date: 2023-11-08
Agency: National Labor Relations Board, Agencies and Commissions

Standard for Determining Joint Employer Status
Document Number: 2023-23573
Type: Rule
Date: 2023-10-27
Agency: National Labor Relations Board, Agencies and Commissions
The National Labor Relations Board has decided to issue this final rule for the purpose of carrying out the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA or Act) by rescinding and replacing the final rule entitled ``Joint Employer Status Under the National Labor Relations Act,'' which was published on February 26, 2020, and took effect on April 27, 2020. The final rule establishes a new standard for determining whether two employers, as defined in the Act, are joint employers of particular employees within the meaning of the Act. The Board believes that this rule will more explicitly ground the joint-employer standard in established common-law agency principles and provide guidance to parties covered by the Act regarding their rights and responsibilities when more than one statutory employer possesses the authority to control or exercises the power to control particular employees' essential terms and conditions of employment. Under the final rule, an entity may be considered a joint employer of another employer's employees if the two share or codetermine the employees' essential terms and conditions of employment.

Agency: National Labor Relations Board, Agencies and Commissions
On March 10, 2023, the National Labor Relations Board (Board) stayed two provisions of its 2019 final rule (``2019 Final Rule'') amending its representation case procedures. The two provisions, which have never been in effect, were stayed until September 10, 2023 to account for new court decisions and because the Board was considering whether to revise or rescind the 2019 Final Rule, including potential revisions to the two provisions. In a rule that published in this edition of the Federal Register, the Board rescinds those provisions, among other changes. In light the new rule, and to ensure the two provisions do not go into effect for only a short period of time, the September 10, 2023 stay of the two provisions is extended to December 26, 2023, the date on which the rule repealing the two provisions is effective.
Representation-Case Procedures
Document Number: 2023-18129
Type: Rule
Date: 2023-08-25
Agency: National Labor Relations Board, Agencies and Commissions
The National Labor Relations Board has decided to issue this final rule for the purpose of carrying out the National Labor Relations Act, which protects the exercise by workers of full freedom of association, self-organization, and designation of representatives of their own choosing for the purpose of negotiating the terms and conditions of their employment or other mutual aid or protection. While retaining the essentials of existing representation case procedures, this rule substantially rescinds the amendments made by a rule the Board promulgated in 2019 (which has been the subject of ongoing litigation) and thereby substantially returns representation case procedures to those that existed following the Board's promulgation of a rule concerning representation case procedures in 2014 (which was uniformly upheld by the federal courts). By doing so, this rule effectuates what the Board deems to be appropriate policy choices that enhance the fair, efficient, and expeditious resolution of representation cases.

These comments have been moved to the correct NPRM docket.

Agency: National Labor Relations Board, Agencies and Commissions
As part of its ongoing efforts to more effectively administer the National Labor Relations Act (the Act or the NLRA) and to further the purposes of the Act, the National Labor Relations Board (the Board) proposes to rescind and replace amendments that the Board made in April 2020 to its rules and regulations governing the filing and processing of petitions for a Board-conducted representation election while unfair labor practice charges are pending, and following an employer's voluntary recognition of a union as the majority-supported collective- bargaining representative of the employer's employees. The Board also proposes to rescind an amendment governing the filing and processing of petitions for a Board-conducted representation election in the construction industry. The Board believes, subject to comments, that these proposed changes will better protect employees' statutory right to freely choose whether to be represented by a labor organization, promote industrial peace, and encourage the practice and procedure of collective bargaining.

Agency: National Labor Relations Board, Agencies and Commissions
In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the National Labor Relations Board (``NLRB'' or ``Agency'') proposes to issue a National Labor Relations Board system of records notice titled, ``Backpay Management System'' (NLRB-36). The Agency is authorized by the National Labor Relations Act to remedy unfair labor practices by issuing a backpay remedy to an individual, called a ``discriminatee,'' for a monetary loss that results from an unfair labor practice. A charged party that owes backpay is generally referred to as a ``respondent.'' The Agency uses the Backpay Management System (BMS) to record received funds from respondents, to effectuate disbursements of backpay and certain related tax forms to discriminatees, and to facilitate providing certain tax forms, tax reports, and tax payments to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Social Security Administration. This system notice will be included in the Agency inventory of record systems. All persons are advised that, in the absence of submitted comments considered by the Agency as warranting modification of the notice as here proposed, it is the intention of the Agency that the notice shall be effective upon expiration of the comment period without further action.

Use of Videoconference Technology To Conduct Unfair Labor Practice and Representation Case Proceedings
Document Number: 2021-23599
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-11-05
Agency: National Labor Relations Board, Agencies and Commissions
The National Labor Relations Board (``NLRB,'' ``Agency,'' or ``Board'') seeks public input on the use of videoconference technology to conduct, in whole or in part, all aspects and phases of unfair labor practice and representation case hearings and on potential amendments to its procedural rules regarding the use of videoconference technology. The Board's current Rules and Regulations provide for the taking of a single witness's testimony via video in an unfair labor practice proceeding upon a showing of good cause based on compelling circumstances. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Board, through adjudication, sanctioned entirely remote hearings in both unfair labor practice and representation cases. The Board has no intention to permanently replace in-person hearings with virtual hearings. To the contrary, once conditions permit, the Board intends to resume conducting in-person hearings. But, based on the Board's experience during the pandemic, the Board is considering whether to retain virtual hearings as an option for future use. Accordingly, the Board solicits responses to targeted questions regarding, among other things, stakeholders' experiences with remote hearings during the pandemic; the benefits and/or drawbacks of using videoconference technology to conduct remote hearings; and the need for, and content of, potential amendments to the Board's rules regarding use of videoconference technology to conduct remote hearings.

The system allows the National Labor Relations Board to collect and maintain records on the results of law enforcement activities concerning individuals maintaining a presence at or who have access to property leased or occupied by the NLRB and who have been reported to present a threat as described above. The NLRB is issuing this system of records notice in compliance with the Privacy Act of 1974. This issued system notice will be included in the NLRB inventory of record systems.

The Board believes, subject to comments, that it should seek to accommodate such voters in light of congressional policies facilitating their participation in federal elections and protecting their employment rights.

Jurisdiction-Nonemployee Status of University and College Students Working in Connection With Their Studies
Document Number: 2019-20510
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-09-23
Agency: National Labor Relations Board, Agencies and Commissions
In order to more effectively administer the National Labor Relations Act (Act or NLRA) and to further the purposes of the Act, the National Labor Relations Board (the Board) proposes a regulation establishing that students who perform any services for compensation, including, but not limited to, teaching or research, at a private college or university in connection with their studies are not ``employees'' within the meaning of Section 2(3) of the Act. The Board believes that this proposed standard is consistent with the purposes and policies of the Act, which contemplates jurisdiction over economic relationships, not those that are primarily educational in nature. This rulemaking is intended to bring stability to an area of federal labor law in which the Board, through adjudication, has reversed its approach three times since 2000.
Representation-Case Procedures: Election Bars; Proof of Majority Support in Construction Industry Collective-Bargaining Relationships
Document Number: 2019-17105
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-08-12
Agency: National Labor Relations Board, Agencies and Commissions
As part of its ongoing efforts to more effectively administer the National Labor Relations Act (the Act or the NLRA) and to further the purposes of the Act, the National Labor Relations Board (the Board) proposes to amend its rules and regulations governing the filing and processing of petitions for a Board-conducted representation election while unfair labor practice charges are pending or following an employer's voluntary recognition of a union as the majority-supported collective-bargaining representative of the employer's employees. The Board also proposes an amendment redefining the evidence required to prove that an employer and labor organization in the construction industry have established a voluntary majority-supported collective- bargaining relationship. The Board believes, subject to comments, that the proposed amendments will better protect employees' statutory right of free choice on questions concerning representation by removing unnecessary barriers to the fair and expeditious resolution of such questions through the preferred means of a Board-conducted secret ballot election.

The following agenda of the National Labor Relations Board is published in accordance with Executive Order 12866, ``Regulatory Planning and Review,'' and the Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA), 5 U.S.C. 601-612, as amended by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act. The complete Unified Agenda is available online at www.reginfo.gov. Publication in the Federal Register is mandated only for regulatory flexibility agendas required under the RFA.

The Board's agenda refers to www.regulations.gov, the Government website at which members of the public can find, review, and comment on Federal rulemakings that are published in the Federal Register and open for comment.
