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.
